Hilarious AND educational!

I’m a kids author, who does a lot of driving as part of her day job. I love listening to this podcast while I’m driving to work, to see what’s going on in the world of Australian kid lit, and just to be generally amused by the general book chitter chat. Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in writing for kids, or who just wants to find out what interesting books are out there in the world of children’s literature.

Love OMP. Never Miss

I love One More Page and check for a few days each month before it’s on so I never miss it. It’s so much fun, so informative and a great way to find out all about the latest in KidLit from PBs to YA. I also love hearing the amazing child interviewers. So smart, articulate and funny and a great way to keep in touch with our audience. Oh, did I say- love One More Page! Merry Christmas and I look forward to more OMP in the new year😊

Daruma Doolittle ,

Friendly, fun, and informative!

Listening to One More Page is like peeking behind the curtains of children’s literature. The author interviews are bursting with fascinating insights, invaluable advice, and exciting news on the latest releases. And to top it off, this wealth of information is presented in such a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere that it feels like Kate, Liz, and Nat have invited us listeners in for a friendly cup of tea.
