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 countries. 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.

New Prints

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. It's 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
