Changing Times shortlisted for the Children's Book Awards

It has been very gratifying to have Changing Times shortlisted in the non-fiction and in the  illustration catergories of the Children's Book Awards. There are some very strong contenders this year. I was particularly pleased to see Phoebe Morris there with her excellent illustrations for First To The Top written by David Hill. A talented young illustrator with a great future ahead of her I reckon. I'm also looking forward to reading David's Enemy Camp and If you haven't yet read Being Magdalene by Fleur Beale rush of to the Children's Bookshop and buy it straight away and while you're there buy the other two books in the series as well.
