Miss Mae's Saturday by Justine Flynn

Tue 5 February 2019

"Mae loved Saturdays. Saturdays were when Grandma came to visit."

But with rain pouring down outside...what will they do? Miss Mae's Saturday is a delightful book about imagination and the wonderful bond between grandmothers and grandchildren. 

Justine Flynn is a writer, producer, director, and mum, and the imagination games she played with her own children inspired this sweet story.

Illustrator and storyboard artist J. Yi takes us into Mae and her Grandma's colourful adventures, filled with wild animals, cherry blossoms and beautiful stars.

To read along with the gorgeous illustrations, get your own copy of the book at your favourite bookstore, or online at BooktopiaMiss Mae's Saturday is published by Penguin Random House Australia.
