Meet the Author – Elizabeth Kirkby-McLeod

We’re delighted to hear from New Zealand children’s author Elizabeth Kirkby-McLeod about her awesome early chapter book series called Eugene’s Island.

These very popular short books feature Eugene and his family who live on a wild and windy island off the coast of New Zealand where Eugene’s father is the conservation ranger. They offer a wonderful opportunity for our tamariki to read stories they can really relate to. As Libby says, they’re great to read to 5-6 year olds as they move to longer stories and offer slightly older readers super books to help them read more independently.

We hope you enjoy finding out more about Libby and her writing via our new YouTube channel!
