City Gallery Wellington - Family Day

Along with several other writers, I was asked to write a fairy tale in response to the Occulture exhibition at the Wellington City Gallery for their Family Day. I managed to rope illustrator Josh Morgan into performing Rose & The Stink Master with me. He did a great job of being both the stinky sorcerer AND the fairy moth mother - on top of creating some awesome illustrations for the kids to colour and add their own flavour to.  SO MUCH FUN!!
