Well, we didn't win first prize. That went to Emily Gravitt for The Rabbit Problem.... A most excellent book. HOWEVER... We had a great time and look at all this fabulous artwork that the children have done!
Children from Magdalen Gates Primary and Lakenham Primary gave some wonderful presentations about the shortlisted books, them we all had chocolate biscuits and stories from yours truly.
AND I won a framed certificate and a book and a beautiful scrap book with copies of all the wonderful pictures and comments the children had produced.
So who cares that Don't Dip You Chips didn't get first place! The shortlist was picked by children and we were on it, which is a great achievement in itself.
Of course the real winners are the children, who have been inspired and motivated by taking part in the awards project. So a very well done to everyone involved.
