Australian DVD release

Nim's Island was released in Australia this week; I haven't had a chance to see it in stores yet myself (I do already have a copy!) but a young friend has just written to tell me that the copy she bought came with a " free pop upthing and an iron on t-shirt." That sounds fun - I'm going to have to have a look!

In the US, Best Buys was offering the DVD with a free copy of Nim at Sea. I don't know if there are any left, but of course I think that's quite a wonderful idea! It's nice to know that watching the movie will introduce more people to Nim, and that they'll want to follow up the next stage of her adventures.
