‘A Very Unusual Pursuit’ has won the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Book of the Year Award for Younger Readers. I just arrived back from Canberra, where I attended the the award ceremony; it was beautifully organised by the ACT branch of the CBCA. Many thanks to everyone who helped me to get there.
A full list of winners and honour books, as well as the judges’ comments can be found at the CBCA website.
The Sydney Morning Herald‘s article about the winning books included a positive review of A Very Unusual Pursuit.
