Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards, 2012

Brilliant brilliant news…

The Last Viking cover

My debut book The Last Viking, written by Norman Jorgensen, has been shortlisted in the Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards 2012!

We scored two mentions:

  • Notable Book, Picture Book of the Year category
  • Shortlisted Book, Early Childhood category

I’m very surprised and very chuffed. It’s one of those cliches… ever since I was a kid, I dreamed that one day one of my books would have the shiny CBCA sticker on the cover- and now it’s happened, hooray! It’s a great honour and a great affirmation. Congrats Norm! And thanks to the CBCA 🙂
