Hazel Edwards

Best known for the children’s classic, There’s a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake series, Hazel Edwards OAM writes for children, YA & adults.
“Reading takes us into other lives and cultures and we emerge at the end of the book with more tolerance of others who are different. Our Hijabi Girl series has been a fun introduction for many young readers to the cultures of Islam and to Aussie Rules football for girls.”

Are you ready for Australian Reading Hour 2021?
Ok, take a deep breath, and repeat after us.

“I will read or listen to an Australian book, whether written or drawn or illustrated or spoken aloud, wherever I may be, in city or bush, in the bath, in bed or up a tree, for one hour on Tuesday 14 September 2021. I will read silently or aloud, I will read by myself or in a crowd. I will read a story that matters to me.”

Great! We’d love to keep you up to date with the latest news and events.
