A Curry for Murray

CBCA-shortlisted illustrator and popular Mamamia contributor cook up a storm in this delightful and heartwarming picture book about neighbours, generosity and food!

Available. Dispatched 2-3 business days

Molly made … slippery duck pasta for her brother’s headmaster, spit-roasted geese for the local police, and Singapore noodles for the Montague poodles!

After making a curry for her neighbour Murray, Molly’s delicious dishes are in demand. Now everyone wants a taste of her cooking! Before long, Molly’s making meals for people in her street, suburb and then people in other cities and even other countries.

But when an unexpected accident means Molly can’t cook, it’s time for Molly to accept kindness in return from her neighbours.

A fun and entertaining story about food, neighbours and kindness.

Kate Hunter

Kate Hunter is a writer of all sorts of things: books, ads, articles and ‘to-do’ lists that rarely get done. Her favourite things are conversation, food, friends and family, preferably enjoyed all at once. Originally keen on journalism, her inclination to embellish the truth got in the way of a credible journalistic career. After twenty years as a copywriter, Kate still writes ads but prefers writing novels. In 2010, Kate published her first middle reader novel Mosquito Advertising: The Parfizz Pitch, followed closely by Mosquito Advertising: The Blade Brief (2011) and Mosquito Advertising: The Crunch Campaign (2012). A Curry for Murray is her first picture book. She lives in Brisbane with her husband, their three kids, a dog, and – after rain – more than a few mosquitoes. One day she would like to live in New York City or on a remote tropical island.
