Enjoying a coffee at St Kilda’s popular Acland Street cake shops with my friend Joan from the UK, and noticed a fellow patron taking notes whilest obviously enjoying a mint slice.
So, we chatted.
Folks, meet Melbourne author Leanne Francia, who has recently published her first children’s illustrated book, “No More Monsters”.
Leanne happened to have a copy, which she graciously signed – and now Joan has a fabulous, real souvenir of her time in St Kilda to take back to the UK and give to a little friend.
The wonderful, interesting people you meet on the street, while having a coffee.
All you need to do is say “hello”.
