Last Friday night we had the great pleasure of launching Matty’s Comeback by Anita Heiss. A great crowd turned up to celebrate with champagne, cake and to hear Anita speak.
Matty’s Comeback is an illustrated chapter book for ages 7 +.

It’s perfect for sporty kids especially those who love rugby league. It’s also a subtle look at identity. As well it encourages kids to have a vocabulary of emotions. Themes like gratitude, goal setting and turning adversity into triumph also underpin the story. But Matty’s Comeback is also warm and funny!

What a cake!
