You probably already know this but I often have heaps of different projects on the go at once (don't we all). But there's one in particular though that has been bubbling away in the background for some years now, and I've been keeping it secret, until now...
For the last few years I've been working closely with author, Peter Barber, to create a childrens book for 3-6 year old girls. But not just any children's book! The book is customisable in lots of ways to suit your own little "Miss Havachat". Name, appearance, family, friends... all customisable through an online interface and delivered anywhere in the world.
The centerfold (it's station street in Fairfield!)
This book has been a long time in the making, mainly because the technology to connect variable image data to digital printing is so new. But finally we got there.
The book comes with gift wrap and a little card to match (and a free download of the Miss Havachat song).
Go check out the website at www.misshavachat.com and if you so please, order a book for a Miss Havachat you know and make them smile :) (my niece loved it and took it to school to show off to all her friends).
We launched the book during 'story time' at the Darebin library and it was a hit:

Colouring in sheets were handed out afterwards - look at her go!
