Book launch at 4pm on Sun 11 Dec: “The Small Five”

ralph-johnstone-the-small-five-promo

Come and meet the ‘small five’, five African creatures you never knew about — and who are more than a match for the ‘big five’ (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant). The small five are in Ralph Johnstone’s new book, which will be launched here at the bookshop by comedian and author Tony Wilson, author of The Cow Tripped Over the Moon.

Find more information on the book at www.thesmallfive.com, and remember to RSVP for the launch via email to books@fairfieldbooks.com.au.
