New Zealand Post Children's Book Award Tour

This Saturday I leave for Nelson.  I arrive a couple of days before the tour so that I can visit the beautiful Nelson/Marlborough area first.  On the Sunday, I'm going on a four wheel drive trip to Farewell Spit.  Ever since writing my children's book 'Save Our Seas' - where I had to research every bit of coastline around New Zealand - I have wanted to visit Farewell Spit.  I hope to see lots of sea birds and perhaps some seals.

After the Farewell Spit trip I travel slowly to Blenheim in time for the tour.  I'll be at these schools and libraries for the next couple of days:

Tuesday 8th May - Witherlea School, Marlborough District Library, Raupara School
Wednesday 9th May- Motueka South School, Motueka Public Library, Hampden St School
Thursday 10th May- Waimea Intermediate School, Nayland Primary School.

    Hi admin just wanted to let you know

    There's an incredible new opportunity
    that just grabbed my attention!

    It's almost too good to be true. Big
    companies are paying people just for giving
    their opinions! I can't believe this guy and others are cashing out money just for filling out simple surveys read here how they are doing this:

    That's right! I'm not kidding, all you've got
    to do is complete simple surveys and these
    companies will pay you fat cash for it and it doe not mater form which country you are, they need people from all over world!

    You've got to see this.

    But the truth is... they're not letting
    very many people join the program so
    you've got to hurry!

    See you there!
