It is a massive honour to be shortlisted in the inaugural Tees Valley Education Book of the Year 2019 Award!
Especially as my book is alongside some AMAZING books by fantastic authors – most of who I am friends with! I hope that doesn’t cause any problems to our friendships!! It is an award that encourages school children in the area to share, express and hopefully develop their love of reading and this year it has focussed the shortlist on Northern authors.
It is a thrill to be involved. Thank you to all the organisers and best of luck to everyone.
The full shortlist is:
The House with Chicken Legs – Sophie Anderson
Armistice Runner – Tom Palmer
Knights and Bikes – Gabrielle Kent
Below Zero – Dan Smith
You Can’t Make Me Go To Witch School – Em Lynas
Some chocolatey book – by some bloke!
