The finalists for the World Kid Lit competition came to the book launch of Eruption! Discovering New Zealand Volcanoes at the National Library on Tuesday July 3rd. I had given the competitors a talk about my books focussing on the volcano books earlier that day, then they were supposed to leave for a boat trip to see some volcanoes up close but the weather made that impossible. They came back for the book launch at 1pm. We started off with a book trailer then an interview with Volcanica and myself. We also had a little volcanic explosion ourselves. Afterwards, the Kid Lit kids enjoyed volcanic sandwiches, cake, lollies and magma juice. We had lots of volcanic fun!
