Last week I headed up to Auckland for the launch of the new Hachette Aotearoa New Zealand imprint - Moa Press. The timing was perfect to go and visit the Chaos Before Christmas windows at Smith & Caughey. My amazing publisher at Hachette, Alison Shucksmith, was the perfect tour guide along Queen Street and the windows certainly did not disappoint. The puppeteers have done an incredible job bring Lily Emo's beautiful illustrations to life, in all their glorious colour and detail.
