The Anzac Tree Has Gone Into Reprint
Christina's latest book has gone into reprint after the Scholastic Australia warehouse sold out days after it's release on April 1st. No, it wasn't an April Fools Day prank! All copies were gone and some copies had to be 'borrowed' from other orders for the book launches to occur. If you don't already have a copy, order it now at your local bookstore, it's proving to be a popular title.
