IT WAS a wild and woolly day at Petrarch's Bookshop on Sunday.
Launceston author and illustrator Christina Booth was in-store to launch her latest children’s book Too Many Sheep.
The book follows the story of Felix and his Grandpa Jack and how they end up with a houseful of sheep.
Children and adults alike were invited to celebrate the book’s launch with a pyjama party and reading at the bookshop.
Booth said that after months of hard work, it was exciting to finally get her book out to the public.
“It was a fun book to write. It’s the first book I’ve digitally illustrated, most of my work is watercolour but this one I did on the computer,” she said.
“I thought, naively, that it would be a little bit easier but it wasn’t because you can keep hitting undo so every time something wasn’t perfect I would go back and fix it.”
She said it was always fun to read the book out loud to children and to see them laughing along with the story she had created.
“I’m really, really pleased with how it all turned out,” Booth said.
“So far everyone’s laughed in the right spots which is always nice.”
Booth has already written many popular and awarded books such as Welcome Home and Kip.
