Congratulations to Glenda Millard & Greg Rogers
Every two years, IBBY (The
International Board on Books for Young People) publish an Honour List of
outstanding, recently published books honouring writers, illustrators
and translators from IBBY member
These books are considered the best in children's literature from each
country and suitable for publication throughout the world, providing
insight into the diverse cultural, political and social settings in
which children live and grow. (If you are interested in the work of IBBY Australia visit their website).
This year two Australian books were included on this honour list - Glenda Millardís novel A small free kiss in the Dark and Gregory Rogers picture book The Hero of little Street.
Itís fabulous that we have Australian
books recognised internationally! Our congratulations and a
reminder that three limited edition prints are available from Gregís
wonderful series of wordless picture books.
Three new prints from Gus Gordonís fabulous new picture book
Herman & Rosie (Penguin Books Australia). Set
in New York, this gorgeous picture book by Gus Gordon is a story about
friendship, life in the big city, and following your dreams.
This is a tale about a big city.
It's a tale of hotdogs and music and the summertime subway breeze.
a tale of singing on rooftops and toffees that stick to your teeth.
But most of all, it's the tale of Herman and Rosie.
'Quirky, soulful and alive . . . a book to treasure, like a favourite song.' Markus Zusak
