Sheffield Children's Book Award 2010

THE GREAT DOG BOTTOM SWAP shortlisted for this years SHEFFIELD CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD won the Commended prize in the Picture Book category.
It was an amazing ceremony with the City Hall packed full of children from all over the city, all stamping their feet and cheering from beginning to end. The overall winner was MORRIS THE MANKIEST MONSTER by Giles Andreae and the lovely Sarah McIntyre (Pictured; second from right in the tartan skirt).
Peter Bently (Author of The Great Dog Bottom Swap - pictured) and I had a great time there. THANKS to all the children who voted! This is a fantastic award and it's all down to the hardwork and dedication of the passionate organisers. Thank you!
