Hocus pocus….Abracadabra!! The countdown is on! Not long until our #picbookbc chat celebrating ‘Magic and Magicians’ !!


We are delighted to be joined by  author Damon Young and we will also be celebrating the release of his 5th picture book ‘My Mum is a Magician’ illustrated by Peter Carnavas and published by UQP.


All mums are different. But what if your mum was really different? What if your mum was a magician?!

Perfect for anyone who has or is a special mum, My Mum is a Magician is a gorgeous celebration of the many talents of mothers everywhere.

Damon is an award winning author and philosopher. He is regular radio guest and festival host. He writes for newspapers/magazines and his non fiction and children’s books are published internationally.  A very talented guy!!!


We are huge fans of his picture book series and are super excited for the 5th addition! If you haven’t discovered them yet you are in for a treat! Check out My Nanna is a Ninja, My Pop is a Pirate, My Sister in a Superhero and My Brother is a Beast on Damon’s webpage. 

Here are the chat questions for our Magical #picbookbc chat!

Q1. What is your favourite magical picture book ?! Share a pic!
Q2. What is it about magic themed books that are so alluring?
Q3. Mem Fox had a ‘Magic Hat’ in her picture book…what piece of clothing would you like to be magical?
Q4. Magic can be super powers..spells and hocus pocus. It can also be more mysical. e.g Magic Beach vs Meg and Mog. What is your favourite type of magic in pic books?

There will also be plenty of time at the end for Damon to answer your questions so put those magical thinking caps on!!

We look forward to partying with you ‘picture book’ style on Thursday night the 5th April at 8pm AEST for another #Picbookbc Twitter chat!
