About Margaret Mahy

In 1936, the year Margaret Mahy was born, only four books for children were published in New Zealand. Mahy was influential in changing the landscape of children's literature in her homeland - one of the most prolific of authors, she penned over 100 titles.

After seeing The Jungle Book, she announced to her astonished seven-year-old classmates that she could talk to animals - 'I had to resort to talking a certain gibberish and eating leaves and drinking out of puddles to prove how close I was to the Animal Kingdom.'

    3) Not sure what are flares, but remarketing is basically showing you advertisements after you leave a website. Sometimes when you land on a site, then leave and all of a sudden you start to see ads from that site appearing on random sites that you subsequently visit, trying to draw you back to the website. So it's a pretty neat marketing and branding tactic.

      so you will have to purchase a custom domain name yourself. If you sign up to Squarespace's annual plan, they do give you a free custom domain name for 1 year.

    Our community group wants to set up a website which would have members preparing audio, video digital image, written literature programs on it. Some "programs" will be regular and others just one off's. We may have 30-50 people doing "shows" like this. Would a squarespace product meet our need?
