Giveaway: Zana Fraillon Double Book Prize Pack

The Gargoyle
is Zana Fraillon at her best, crafting a heartwarming tale beautifully illustrated by fine artist Ross Morgan.

This poignant story of an old gargoyle, forced off his rooftop to make way for a new urban development in a barren cityscape, and the child who encounters him on an overcrowded train, comes from one of Australia's most critically acclaimed writers for children. It is an unforgettable story about conservation, ageing and legacies which will leave a forever imprint on your heart.

Coupled with Zana's junior fiction novel illustrated by Andrew Joyner, Etta and the Octopus; a hilarious, fully illustrated tale about an unlikely friendship between a girl and an octopus that is perfect for newly independent readers, and you've got a double whammy prize pack worth crowing over.

Thanks to the good folk at Hachette Australia, we are giving away these titles celebrating friendship.
