Author launches new children's book

Empire Bay author Ms Karen Witt has launched her new children's book.

The Claw is an adventure story, for children aged between three and eight, about a crab on a mission to stop a greedy fisherman from catching all the crabs in the bay, she said.

"After losing one of his nippers, Clive, an Australian mud crab, needs to find the strength to save his fellow crabs, gaining new friends along the way."

Ms Witt said she was inspired to write the book after many fishing trips on Brisbane Water, catching crabs.

The story included both mud and blue swimmer crabs as loveable characters at the mercy of hungry fishermen, and a locally-inspired character, Mr Norman Beerbellio, she said

"With this book, I wanted to create a story that was fun and engaging for both adults and children.

"I can't wait to share this book with the world" says Karen.
