riley and the curious koala launch party - the whole shebang

Monday, 29 November 2010

Things are pretty hectic with the release of two books right now, so I've finally managed to write up a peek at the entire book launch shebang for Riley and the Curious Koala! I hope you enjoy this look into a sensational party celebration, with gorgeous photos taken by photographer and graphic designer, Jen Leheny from Red Instead.

Enjoy the virtual party!

First there was the Sydney-themed candy bar...


wombats, opera houses, the rocks - what more could a kid need?

incredible cakes by pARTy cakes
  
candy bar to swoon over
Then there was the koala masks and paper plane folding...

kids got busy with making their very own koala mask
  

the REAL riley can be seen in the background here.... he's an elusive little soul!






koalas koalas koalas!
Then there was the reading...










Then the illustrator at work...


there was truly an awed silence as Kieron worked



he's so super talented and so cool!

Then there was signing books and playing outside with the glorious Steve Whisker from Kelly Sports...
