Python hits the 2013 Short List

What a surprise, what a blast, and I am rather chuffed!

Why was I getting all those text messages, and who was posting those notes on Facebook ? (It all began with the lovely Sarah Davis.) For lo and behold and oh my gosh and far outPython has been short-listed for the 2013 Eve Pownall Award for Information Books by the Children’s Book Council of Australia.  You can see the complete shortlist here. And another lo and behold because there is also the notables list and … Inventions, created with Linsay Knight  in conjunction with the Powerhouse Museum, was listed there too.


Mark Jackson created the amazing illustrations for Python and Walker Books believed in Pythons … and me! Thanks to the Walker Books Team and especially my friend Sarah Foster who was there when my first book was published all those years ago!!

And my wife is pretty chuffed too! Yee hah!
