Hello, Melbourne! shortlisted for Australian Book industry Award
Big news! Hello, Melbourne! has just been longlisted (and then shortlisted!) for an Australian Book Industry Award! It's always a wonderful feeling when your work is recognised, but especially lovely when it's sitting amongst the work of other extremely talented people!
Hello, Melbourne! is in the running for small publisher's Children's Book of the Year, with my amazing publishers at Thames & Hudson. Having the opportunity to work on both Hello, Sydney! and Hello, Melbourne! with the brilliant team at T&H has been the best experience over the past 2 years, and it's so exciting to see something we all worked so hard on be in the running for such a great award.
You can see all the different categories at the 2018 ABIA Book Awards on their website here.
