Here is our exclusive interview with Australian author and illustrator, Sandra Stewart, whose first book tittle will be released next year! With the help of her daughter, Sandra has written modern interpretations of favourite childhood classic rhymes, so readers can revisit their old-time faves, whilst meeting new characters along the way! Be prepared for humorous rhymes about mamas, papas and today’s whole modern family! Sandra is a busy mama – she’s in the process of launching a new website, online art store and attached blog for early next year, and she’s looking forward to connecting with other mamas and readers on a more informative platform (how exciting – we can’t wait!).

Have you ever been to Dubai? If so where did you stay, was it child friendly and what was your favourite activity? If you haven’t then would you be interested in visiting and why?YES, YES, YES, I adore Dubai! On our current trip to Dubai we are hosting an afternoon tea at Ladurée! For this event, my daughter will be helping me host and I’m grateful that she will be involved! It’s a great chance to meet other children from Dubai, and share the experience. Dubai has a great family atmosphere! (We have also organised an adults and children’s colouring competition, so we know it’s definitely child friendly!)
