Edited to add: We’ve also just won the NSW Royal Zoolological Society’s Whitley Award for Children’s Introduction to Ecology!
I’m very excited to announce that Dry to Dry: The Seasons of Kakadu has won the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Eve Pownall Award for Information Books. That’s a mouthful – basically, illustrator Liz Anelli and I have won Book Week for non-fiction!
To celebrate, I’ve made a video of me reading the book, and showing off Liz’s fantastic artwork. You can watch it right here:
