Beloved children's book character Billie B Brown is turning ten.  And her award-winning Australian creator Sally Rippin is celebrating with three new books, illustrated by Aki Fukuoka, to add to the twenty already on kids' bookshelves. The Billie B Brown series has now sold over five million world-wide, translated into 14 languages. Sally tells Kathryn Ryan how she was due to come to Auckland for the Writers Festival, but because of lock-down, is pouring her talents into an on-line school holiday programme instead.
