Don't miss the chance to meet Mitch Vane at Fed Square Book Market this Saturday!

Fed Square Book Market:
Saturday 27th July 
Join us to celebrate a brand new scary picture book illustrated by Mitch Vane and written by Danny Katz , A Book About Scary, published by Five Mile Press.
A Book about Scary is an A to Z of Scary -- from Alien Zombies to being in bed in the dark (zzzzzz). This is a very tongue-in-cheek look at all things scary, from the traditional (fear of the dark) to the quirky (sticking your hand in a letterbox)
This is Mitch's first book with Five Mile Press Australia.  

Meet Mitch 1 to 3pm  -  have a book personally signed and see how she created the illustrations for this book.
