Review of Bonjour Lucy Bee in the July Magpies Magazine, very heartening. Reviewer, Melissa Spark says that "There is nothing overly political in this book; only the truth about human relationships, identity and empathy." She describes the book as "gently tackling the topic of prejudice, tolerance and the current refugee crisis, encouraging the reader to employ sensitivity for people who are displaced." And goes on to say, "The easy way this is written genuinely asks the year 6 reader or intermediate reader to consider what they would do in a similar situation." What more could a writer ask for?
