WIN 1 of 25 copies of Little Nic’s Big Day by Nic Naitanui, illustrated by Fatima Anaya, thanks to Allen & Unwin.

A heart-warming celebration of all the wonderful ways kids are truly themselves.


Wake up, little Nic. It’s your very first day!

Your school clothes are ready. Let’s get on our way.


Mum, I’m not sure. I’m a little bit wary.

Will I make friends? Will it be scary?


Nic is nervous about his first day … but with the help of his mum and a whole class of new friends, it might just be the best day ever.

‘I wrote this for tots, teens and all human beings. Let’s embrace our differences and celebrate our diversity!’ – Nic Naitanui

About the author:

Nic Naitanui – affectionately known as NicNat – is the well-known, widely respected and much-loved ruckman of the West Coast Eagles AFL team. Nic was born in Sydney to Fijian parents, before his family moved to Western Australia. Nic was raised by his mother, who he credits with fostering his strong values and his success on and off the field. Outside of football, Nic is committed to giving back to the community. This is his first book for children.

Fatima Anaya is a graphic designer and children’s illustrator who loves stories about magic, love, friendship, family and animals. She lives in El Salvador with her family, including Milu, a lovely Siberian Husky.
