THANK YOU STEPHEN WHITESIDE

Post by Glenny Palmer » Thu Aug 25, 2016 9:40 pm

A huge 'Thank You" to Stephen for donating his bonzaaa book, "The Billy That Died With Its Boots On", as a prize for The Copper Croc Awards. It's a brilliant book & I will have to be ultra disciplined to not wander off to read it all, when The Copper Croc has much yet to be finalised.

You can buy this unique production here: http://www.stephenwhiteside.com.au/the-book/ You just click on the "Buy from Readings" button, and follow the links.

Good on you Stephen - and as I have your "Billy" book in my collection now, I can vouch that whoever receives it will certainly enjoy its varied and quirky content.

It reminds me of a comment that Orson Welles made about Oscar Wilde's story "The Happy Prince". He said "it purports to be a story for children" - but of course anyone reading it soon realises it is so much more. I thought the same about your book.

Cheers
