Even MORE AMAZING news … Old Hu-hu WON the Book of the Year Award!!
I’m still too excited to write about the awards night. But hopefully when I get back from holidays, I’ll write a full report. It was very exciting winning the Best Picture Book Award. But Kiss!Kiss! Yuck!Yuck! won that a couple of years ago, so I knew what it felt like. But when they called my name for the Book of the Year award as well, I nearly fell over!!
The best part was meeting some of my favourite New Zealand writers – like Margaret Mahy, Joy Cowley, Gavin Bishop and Des Hunt. I even got to have breakfast with Piggity-wiggity-jiggity-jig!
