Event info

Come and join us on a Saturday afternoon to meet children's author Caz Goodwin! Caz will be bringing along a special guest, Lazy Daisy the Koala!

All of Jasper's dreams come true when he finds his very own 'puppy dog' to walk in Centenary Park. But Daisy the 'dog' isn't much of a walker — she tends to spend most of her day climbing gumtrees and dozing. If only someone would explain to Jasper that Daisy is a koala, NOT a dog! Just as Jasper's about to give up on his dream, he has a madcap idea of how Daisy can still join him on his daily walk, whether she's asleep or not. Lazy Daisy is a hilarious rhyming story that will have kids doubled over with laughter.

This is a FREE event that will be held on 'Love Your Bookshop Day' and we can't wait to see you there!
