Featuring Karen Hendriks at HOME

#home #bookcampaign #booksontourpr

It’s such a pleasure to welcome back Karen Hendriks, returning to our blog following her previous book campaigns for Go Away, Foxy Foxy, and Feathers. Now, we have the honour of exploring a personal journey of the sacrifice Karen’s own family endured after World War 2, in a stunning tribute of hope – her new picture book called ‘Home‘, illustrated by Alisa Knatko. Thank you, Karen, for this eye-opening and soulful story, which beautifully fits in to this week’s Book Week theme; Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds…

About the Author

Karen Hendriks is a free spirit with a love for stories and words. Karen’s story imagination glimmers and shines like an opal, waiting to be polished into words!  She is a children’s author based on the NSW South Coast, living in a seaside village where she often swims in an ocean pool and writes at one of the local cafes. Her repertoire of writing spans from picture books to junior fiction and middle grade, as well as teaching writing to children. Her stories are full of heart, and are also quirky, warm, funny and tender. Her secret story partner is Elmo, a little Moodle who is always by her side.

Karen is a proud ambassador for Books in Homes; an organisation that helps give books to students in disadvantaged schools. Karen visits schools and believes stories help children create their own kind of wonderful for themselves.

We are thrilled to help celebrate the release of Home, published by Daisy Lane Publishing.
