Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award shortlisting

Astrid Lindgren was one of my childhood heroes. Yesterday, at the Frankfurt Book Fair, nominees for the 2017 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award were announced.  I’m very honoured to be on the list, alongside some of my favourite children’s authors and illustrators. http://www.alma.se/Documents/2016/Nominated_Candidates_2017.pdf
