Children's Book Council, Book of the Year Awards

I'm sure there were many anxious authors and illustrators this morning - all awaiting the Short List announcement for the Children's Book of the Year Awards. This year, my book Arnie Avery was in the running and I'm thrilled to say it made the Children's Book Council NOTABLE BOOK List for 2011.

It's incredible to see my name listed alongside some multi award-winning Australian authors...Jackie French, Garth Nix, Bob Graham...Congratulations to every Notable author and illustrator. What a fine list of books.
