A festival of letters to NZ children’s authors: Tom (9) writes to Paula Green



Dear Paula,

Kia ora.  I recommend The Letterbox Cat and other poems, by Paula Green to the children of New Zealand. The book is filled with creative poems.  They are light and bright. They make me write in the night.

This Letterbox Cat, waits for ideas like I do when I am writing.

Paula, how do you know when a poem is the best you can make it?

I wish I was a poem-maker every Monday.

Best wishes,



Tom N (9 years)
