My latest book

Last month (February 2021) I had a brand new book out... New Zealand Disasters: Our response, resilience and recovery' illustrated by the talented Marco Ivancic and published by Scholastic. As well as revealing the historical, contemporary and just-happened incidents, the book includes what we've learned from the disasters. We wanted to give the book a positive slant. There's also tips on what to do if you're caught in a disaster, what to pack when evacuating, and how to recover. We've also included the important people who help us get through the disasters. Here's a couple of page spreads to show you how cool it is:

The text shows what it was like during the earthquake.

We also say what the country learned from each disaster.
In the Back Matter we showcase the First Responders and Essential Workers

There're also tips on how to Respond, Recover and be Resilient
The snazzy cover designed by Smartwork Creative.

Thanks to the team for helping make the book look so good. The Team: Marco Ivancic (illustrator); Lynette Evans (Scholastic publisher), Penny Scown (editor), Abby Haverkamp (admin), and Smartwork Creative (design team).
