Return to Nim’s Island – National Premiere at Australia Zoo
Of course the zoo is also Bindi Irwin’s home – no wonder she’s so perfect for Nim.
The Nim Stories will hit Australian shops on March 20, but my publisher has kindly rushed copies to the Zoo’s Crocoseum Boutique, and I’ll be signing copies between 2:00 and 3:00. If you already have a copy of Nim’s Island or Nim at Sea I’ll be happy to sign those for you too.
