Children's book launch in Katoomba

Local writer Jodie McLeod and illustrator Eloise Short recently launched their children's book Leonard the Lyrebird, which is set in the Blue Mountains, at the Cultural Centre in Katoomba. Youngsters were enthralled with both the story and the pictures. Copies of the book can be purchased online at jodiemcleod.com/books or at selected Mountains bookstores.
