Once again, I’m very honoured to be a nominee for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. So many of my favourite children’s authors are featured on the list that I feel thrilled and very humbled to see my name in the company of writers that I have long admired.
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
The Year It All Ended has been honoured by the Children’s Book Council of Australia in their 2015 Book of the Year Awards. It’s been listed as a notable book in the Older Readers category. This is my seventh book to receive a CBCA notables listing – my lucky number! You can read the full list of 2015 Notable Books on the CBCA website.
