'Penelope Plume' didn't receive the book launch it deserved as the author, Jo Rothwell, was diagnosed with incurable cancer around the same time. The Rothwells are lovely people (Carlton mad!) and I want to give this book a big push to support Jo's treatment and also their gorgeous son Harry as he enters a new school. You can click on the link in my bio to buy. Cheers! @rothwellpublishing

Hi Jo, I am a friend of Penny O'Brien. She gave my son 2 of your books which he loves! He is only 4.5 months old but will happily sit there and read his favourite books.  Here is a photo of him enjoying One Yelpy Kelpie. He also loves Penelope Plume!  Carla

Coco the Kelpie loves to read One Yelpy Kelpie's Melbourne Adventure - in a library of course!

Thank you very much for sending your Yelpy Kelpie books to us in Portland Oregon USA!  We are loving them both.  Attached is a photo of our Kelpie, Annie, with David on our Grand Canyon adventure.

Chasing Normal - Taking the C out of Cancer

This was an excellent book. With such a hard topic as cancer, you always knew it was going to be a tough read. Following Jo on her roller-coaster ride was intense, but also beautifully balanced with the lighter aspect of her life - her incredibly strong and vital relationship with her son. Highly recommend this book to everyone but especially those with cancer affecting their lives or those around them, which is pretty well everyone anyway.
