Bob will be sharing the latest in new fiction for years 6-10, and also sharing his expertise in literacy and reading and will be sharing his secrets to getting kids inspired to read.
Mark is the author and publisher (along with his wife Rowan) of the acclaimed ‘Cork on the Ocean’ and the NZ Post Book Awards Children’s Choice 2011 winner ‘Baa Baa Smart Sheep.
"Together we are friends, parents, creative partners, and dreamers of big dreams! We love to make picture books and are inspired by stories that entertain grown-ups as much as the kids." - from their website: www.dreamboatbooks.com
