Peter Beale, in the Newcastle Herald, described it as “an enchanting read”, while ABC Radio’s Richard Fidler thought it “completely delightful” (you can hear me interviewed by Richard as part of his Conversations series here). Poet Bob Adamson described me as “the Gilbert White of the Styx”, which is absolutely lovely, and something I’ll cherish if I never receive another word of praise again.

The cover is this lovely print of me and Jambo in Styx Creek, by Newcastle printmaker Christine Bruderlin.
Update: thank you to everyone who has made the book such a success. As you can see from the sales chart below, Styx Creek put everyone from Paul Keating to PD James in their place! It ended up coming in at #4 in the 2012 bestseller chart at MacLean’s Booksellers!
