Good News X 2!

It’s always good to come home from holiday and find there’s something to distract you from the pile of washing, but it’s usually something very minor. Not this time… I’ve come home to news of listings for not one, but two book awards!

From Shore to Ocean Floor, illustrated by the wonderful Christopher Nielsen and published by Big Picture Press, has been longlisted for the UKLA Book Awards. I’m particularly chuffed to be on this list as it’s judged by teachers and I’ve always been keen to champion the use of science books in the classroom.

Microbe Wars, illustrated by the amazing Marianna Madriz and published by Templar Books, has been shortlisted for the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize. The shortlisted books now go out to judging schools all over the country. It’s a very exciting prospect to think of pupils having the final say about which book wins!
