Launching Mattie's Magical Animal Dreamworld

  • Exclusive Books Canal Walk

We are so excited to announce that Mattie's Magical Animal Dreamworld series of books (which Jane illustrated) are officially out in the world! 

The two books, "Up, up and Away," and "The Castle of Cupcakes" tell stories about a little girl named Mattie who has fantastic adventures with african animals in her dreams.  They are fun, whimsical and beautiful.  Perfect for the little children in your life. 

We would love to see you at the official launch on at 11:30 am on 30 May, 2015 at Exclusive Books Canal Walk. Come for a reading and signing, and stay for the cupcakes!  (See invitation and sample illustrations below.)

They were written by Lynn Bedford Hall and illustrated by Jane Heinrichs, and published by Penguin Random House South Africa.

If you can't make the launch, you can buy the books online from Exclusive books here: 

Castle of Cupcakes and Up up and away. They are also available in Afrikaans here: Op, Op Na die Wolke and Die Koekiekasteel. (Just click on the titles to head to the online shop.)

We would love it if you would share this with all your friends and family, and your children's teachers and school librarians.  Let's support local South African books!
