The Princess and the Presents wins Magnolia Award

I am delighted to announce that The Princess and the Presents, published by Nosy Crow and illustrated by Sarah Warburton, has won the Magnolia Children's Choice Award for the State of Mississippi USA!

The Award aims to "introduce the children of Mississippi to current children's literature and instil a love of reading."

Lindsay Beck, Secretary, and PreK-2nd Selection Committee Chair for the Award, said, "Your book was a hit with our committee and I can also say as a school librarian, who went through the voting process with all of my students, that it was a hit with them too! Please accept my congratulations on behalf of the committee and the children of Mississippi."

I am planning a skype session with Ms Beck's class so watch this space for photos and more!
