SPOT THE KOMBI – THIS WEEKEND! STREETS OF SYDNEY!

It’s on!

This Weekend.

Planning to head around the city’s south on Saturday and inner-city and east on Sunday…

Free stickers of elephant’s bottoms and book marks if you catch us shooting the breeze by the side of the road or in a park somewhere!!

SPOT THE KOMBI COMPETITION

Have you ever wanted to own a stuffed kakapo? If the answer is yes you better keep your eyes peeled round the streets of Sydney this November because I’m running a competition.

All you gotta do is spot the Kombi, take a pic, post it to instagram with the hashtag #thewhatonearthinstituteofwonder and tag me as well! @liasnicolauthor.

Basically, launching a book during a lockdown was impossible so I thought I’d do something a little different to send The What On Earth Institute of Wonder out into the world. 

Stay tuned for more details in the next few days about exactly where and when you can spot the Kombi!

All the lovely reviews What on Earth has been getting will be posted soon too!

 

THE WHAT ON EARTH INSTITUTE OF WONDER

It’s an actual book. And it’s actually out. Just like the jasmine.

From today THE WHAT ON EARTH INSTITUTE OF WONDER is available in all good bookstores. It’s about a gang of friends who kidnap a rare African forest elephant. If I tell you any more than that, I might ruin the story but let’s just say kidnapping an elephant is not an easy thing to do even when it is the right thing to do. Which I’m not saying it is. There’s also a talking kakapo, an eight-and-a-half-year-old doomsday prepper, a villain with a fondness for wearing Peter Rabbit pyjamas and a lot of underage driving.
It’s a strange environment to be releasing a book but an even stranger time to live. As my mother always says ‘Just keep going!’

The What On Earth Institute of Wonder comes out 31 August. I’m excited and nervous all at once…..
