Chantelle and Burgen on Tour!

Following the successful publication of The Singing Stone, Chantelle & Burgen Thorne were asked by Jacana Media and Books and Books to take part in a book tour covering a total of over 600km travelling between schools across South Africa and their home in the hills!

With Burgen manning the fort to look after their their menagerie of pets, Chantelle got the lucky task to visit the schools and read the story to the pupils, followed by a short Q&A after. Chantelle was thrilled at the enthusiasm of the children for the story and their inquisitive nature as she described life as an illustrator, teaching them that you really can do this for a job! They hope to do another round of visits in the New Year, possibly including schools in Johannesburg and Pretoria as well! Phew - what a busy pair!
