The Princess and the Giant East Midlands Award WIN!!


WE WON the Geoffrey Trease Prize for Children's Writing! 

This is an extra, discretionary award only rarely given, so we are extra-super pleased to have won it!!

Thank you to everyone at the awards, and to Sarah Warburton for her outstanding illustrations and to Nosy Crow for publishing it!

I'm over the moon to bring you more award news! This time it's a little closer to home.

The Princess and the Giant has been shortlisted for the East Midlands Book Award.  This is a regional award open to writers based in the East Midlands. It's the first time a picture book has ever been shortlisted so getting this far is totally amazing!

There are six books in all, including novels by Steven Dunne, Tom Preston, Jonathon Taylor, Jess Green and Eve Makis.  Winners will be announced at Lowdham Book Festival in June.

The prize is £1000 so keep your fingers crossed and Sarah Warburton and I might just get a fancy afternoon tea out!

The Princess and the Giant is illustrated by Sarah Warburton and published by Nosy Crow. Find out more here.
