Meet the author Pip Harry out from Singapore on her May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust Fellowship. Find out about her new verse novel The Little Wave and try your hand at writing a verse poem. Have you ever written to a penfriend? Pip’s characters tell each other about their favourite and least favourite things. You may be asked to tell yours, but shhh, it’s a secret.
Pip Harry writes award-winning novels for young adults, including I’ll Tell You Mine, Head of the River and Because of You. Pip loves sharing her passion for writing and storytelling and has presented workshops and talks at schools, universities and major literary festivals. Her most recent book The Little Wave is a moving and heart-warming verse novel about friendship, new experiences and staying true to yourself. When a Manly school sets out to bring a country class to the city for a beach visit, three very different kids find each other and themselves. https://www.pipharry.com/blog/2019/3/5/introducing-the-little-wave
