Macmillan Book Prize 2014

What a week it's been!

On Tuesday I was invited along to the Macmillan Book Prize 2014 where I was awarded the Lara Jones Award along with 2nd prize overall. I am chuffed and thrilled that they selected my Blankets book. Everyone at the event was lovely especially Ella Butler, head designer at Campbell Books (Macmillan's toddler book imprint.) I was also very fortunate to chat for a very long time to much celebrated author and illustrator, David Roberts and Emily Gravett. 

Congratulations to everyone that won a prize and who was highly commended. It was a privilege to be among so many talented individuals. A special congratulations goes to the overall winner, Bethan Woollvin and to my good friend, Robert Ramsden who was highly commended. 

Here's a picture of me with Ella at the private view.
