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.|
|In the Back Matter we showcase the First Responders and Essential Workers|
|There're also tips on how to Respond, Recover and be Resilient|
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).
