A Nest for Kora

Illustrated by Judith Rossell

Windy Hollow Books ISBN: 9781921136030

A young hen Kora is preparing to lay her first egg. Where will she find the perfect nest?

Reviews: Australian author Claire Saxby has produced a simple and elegant tale about learning from mistakes and growing a little smarter in the process. Judith Rossell’s farmyard illustrations are a joy, particularly her depiction of a country homestead’s back verandah, filled with luscious detail. This is a truly enchanting story for children aged 2-5 years. Victoria Larkin, Melbourne’s Child August 2007

BIO: Claire says “I have been playing with words for many years, but began writing for children in 1998. I have worked at many jobs including waitressing, vote counting, mail sorting, podiatry, sheet ironing and towel folding. I have worked in hospitals and in community health. I like writing best.”
