Children's Book Launch!

“There was oink-ing and quacking and even a neigh,

as each bubble burst in its magical way”

Mother and daughter team Elisabeth and Sarah Hardy was inspired to write and illustrate this rhyming tale after reminiscing about Sarah’s son, who as a baby blew lots of bubbles.

Elisabeth Hardy:
I have many memories of Sarah’s first son as a baby, and the bubbles he blew,
so with my love of Owls, I coupled the two together, 
creating this children’s story of how a baby owl who blew magical bubbles
was able to bring harmony to his farmyard friends.

Local graphic designer and illustrator, Sarah, has used pastel pencil to accentuate the amazing colours and define her distinctive style.

The launch of Barnowlby Bubbles will be an exciting afternoon for all and there will be signed copies of Barnowlby Bubbles from the author and illustrator. There will also be a special time for telling the story.

Guest speaker at the launch is Lou Harvey-Zahra. She is a successful author of the parenting books: Turning Tears into Laughter: Creative Discipline for the Toddler and Preschool Years. Lou has been inspiring parents across the country and will be talking about her experiences in parenting and how children’s books are a hugely important aspect in the early years, as well as talking about aspects of her published works.

The book launch for Barnowlby Bubbles will be held on

Saturday 11th December, 2.30pm – 4.30pm

Eltham Multipurpose Room,

Eltham Library, Panther Place, Eltham (Victoria)

  1. Hi There

    I don't want to steal Elisabeth and Sarah's thunder, and I wish them every succes with the launch and subsequent sales, but reading this post made the parallells obvious - I and my (now ten year old son) recently published an illustrated children's book with strong conservation and sustainability themes, and perhaps some of your readers would like to take a look. Please see The African Animal Football Cup

    Kind regards
