Aiming for the Stars!

Some thirty plus years after winning my first writing award (The Lyons Maid Ice Cream Company’s ‘Best Story About Our Zoom Icy Pole Award’), I am pleased to announce, I finally have an outside shot an one more.

No not another gong for my classic tale of the Zoom rocket ship that flies to frozen planet and gets eaten by very appreciative aliens. This time it’s for Andy Flegg which has just been shortlisted for Readings inaugural Children’s Book Prize. You can check it out here.

The winner won’t be announced until July and sadly even if I do win, I don’t think these guys do the 'year’s supply of icy poles' thing. But it’s still very exciting all the same!
