Meeting Sally Rippin

I was thrilled to hear via email while I was in Portugal and also when I returned to school that ‘half of St Martin’s’ turned up to meet author Sally Rippin during the school holidays when she visited Greensborough Plaza! I was told the line was very long and that some people patiently waited for over 40 minutes to meet Sally and have a copy of her new book Polly and Buster signed as their well as much loved copies of Billie B. Brown and Hey Jack! It is always exciting to meet one of your favourite authors and I’m sure that Sally was equally thrilled to meet so many of her readers on the day.

A HUGE thank you to one of our Year 2 students who had our library copy of Polly and Buster signed and was lucky to meet Sally and have her photo taken with her.

This keen Year One student was first in line to meet Sally. He has been reading his way through the Hey Jack! series this year and is now reading his signed copy of Polly and Buster.

These are some of our excited Year One students lined up ready to meet Sally!

If you had your photo taken with Sally and would like me to put it here on our LRC Blog then please email it to me at 

Polly and Buster by Sally Rippin

Sally Rippin is known to many of our readers as the author of the very popular Billie B Brown and Hey Jack! series of books. 

Sally has written the first book of her new series called Polly and Buster.

Who ever heard of a witch and a monster being friends?

Everyone knows that witches don’t mix with monsters. Witches are educated, clever, sophisticated.
But monsters? Monsters are just uncouth. Some are even dangerous.

But Polly the witch and Buster the feelings monster have been best friends forever. It’s the sort of friendship that makes your heart squeeze with happiness. Somehow, they’ve managed to keep their friendship a secret.
Until one day, when everything changes …
