BILBY AWARDS – Alice-Miranda at School is on the shortlist for 2017!
I am so excited to announce that Alice-Miranda at School has been shortlisted in this year’s BILBY (Books I love best yearly) awards run by the Queensland branch of the Children’s Book Council. There is no limit as to the publication date of the titles that can be shortlisted and books can be from Australia or overseas. It came as a huge surprise to me!
Interestingly Alice-Miranda is the only book in the Younger Readers’ Category to have a female protagonist. Girl power!
