Synopsis

Too Cold for a Tutu by Mini Goss

'Wake up, Stella, let's go out and play!' said Barry. He put on his new Nanna-knitted cardigan, and Stella put on her new made-by-Nanna tutu...'It's way too cold for a tutu!' said Barry...'It's never too cold for a tutu!' said Stella...An irresistible story about creative play and the joy of dressing up.

About the Author

Mini Goss was born in Melbourne. Her mum was a model and her dad an architect and like lots of young people at the time her parents soon got on a ship and sailed away to find excitement in London. Mini lived in London and New York for most of her childhood. Despite going to groovy parties and meeting the odd pop-star, Mini, an only child, longed for a 'normal' life back in Melbourne with grandparents, cousins to play with and a dog...When Mini was a teenager she returned to Melbourne, got a dog, a cat, a rabbit and some birds. She was only allowed to watch one hour of TV a day so the rest of the time she spent drawing. Her favourite thing to draw was her dog...As a grown up Mini still likes to draw her dog, her cat, rabbits, birds, fish and her three children. Since starting to write and illustrate children's books about thirteen years ago, her pets and children have been the models for many characters in her books. Mini was awarded the Crichton Award for Illustration in 2002.
