Response to the Launch from Western Australia...

Hi Nicole and friends,

I saw your promotion for the Wizard of OZ event in this week’s PIO online mag. I just wanted to congratulate you for putting on this grand event. To say this book is an inspirational classic would be selling it short. It’s a dream builder and a career starter for many of us children’s writers. I wish I could be there. I live in beautiful Perth and I’m unable to make it. However, I hope everybody there gets as much out of this occasion as I know I would.

Have fun and let your imagination soar.

Bryan Evans
