December 10, 2020
Children's author Dereley Barry

Children's author Dereley Barry didn't expect the print-run of her first ever self-illustrated book to sell out in a flash. But within only one month, she had to order more books with the printers.
Dereley celebrated the second edition of her kids' adventure book, when she performed a live reading and fun show that had Foxton's primary school children in stitches. Her story is about a live pair of undies that gets itself into all kinds of twists at Foxton Beach.
Dereley says she worked in primary schools for decades '" organising the pantomimes and kids' drama and says now it's my time to give back to the little ones, with a show of my own.
The book-reading performance was held in the open space of Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom's foyer, in Foxton. The hilarious characters in 'Top Bottom Secret Undies Cover Agent '" A stripey blue adventure' l come to life through Dereley's use of silly voices and characterisations.
Schools throughout the region may follow suit '" from Manawatū and beyond, to Kāpiti. Dereley says it's funny how you think you're settling into quiet retirement and then suddenly you achieve notoriety all over the place.
