New Zealand Post Book Awards

Launch Event

There were plenty of little moments creating big magic this week at the Taranaki launch of the NZ Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. Local storyteller, Charles Pittams, brought to life one of the finalist books The Boring Book ...with his magical reading. A tree, inspired from the book, was unveiled in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Clubrooms in Hawera and children released balloons tied with special messages saying why reading was magical. Ken the Magic Man was on hand to complete the magic circle.
