The dynamic duo Davina Bell and Allison Colpoys are coming to Squishy Minnie for a very special storytime on Saturday 1st of December to read us their books including the extremely fabulous new release All the Ways to be Smart.

You’ll most likely recognise Davina and Allison’s names from their gorgeous books Under the Love Umbrella and The Underwater Fancy Dress Parade. Not only are each of them incredibly skilled and admired in their respective professions, they are two of the kindest most generous souls you could ever meet. We are absolutely chuffed to be hosting them!

The storytime starts at 2pm and you can register here –…/davina-bell-alison-colp…/

It is suitable for 3 to 8 year olds and there is a $5 charge which will be donated to the Kyneton Caring Community Inc. Food Bank.

For anyone not located in Victoria and wanting signed copies of All the Ways to be Smart – feel free to order online and pop a note in the order saying who you would like the book dedicated to. We can even wrap it for you (and post it directly to the recipient if you like)!…/all-the-ways-to-be-smart/

Davina and Allison will be signing books immediately after the storytime (from 1.30pm), so do feel free to come along to get books signed for gifts if you are unable to make the actual storytime. We know that there is a whole fanclub of local kids who loved Alice (written by Davina) as part of The Australian Girls Series that may want to pop past and say hello to Davina and get their Alice books signed.
