Reviews from Brisbane's Lord Mayor

Jacqui and Brisbane Lord Mayor
Brisbane Lord Mayor loves Jacqui's books
Jacqui and Brisbane Lord Mayor

"I’m so proud of local Brisbane author Jacqui for creating this delightful book that I’ve been able to give to my daughter Octavia. The things I loved most about it are that it’s so much more than just a beautifully illustrated read, it’s also educational, in an entertaining way with practical elements to keep little, growing minds busy and teach them new skills. I encourage everyone, whether a birthday is coming up or just a surprise, to have this book on hand as the perfect present."

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner - Brisbane
