Marty shortlisted!

Exciting News!

Marty’s Nut-Free Party has just been shortlisted for the Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year Awards (Lower Primary.)

Here’s how they described it!

“Finally! A fun way to explain allergies to all young children! This appealing story with a likeable character has an interesting and highly relevant narrative. The main idea is explored via humorous text with familiar settings and occurrences. The language chosen has rhythm and repetition and would be well-liked by young readers.”

It’s a wonderful shortlist, including gorgeous books like Gracie and Josh by Susanne Gervay and Serena Geddes, Sophie Scott Goes South by Alison Lester, Saurus Street: Tyrannosaurus in the Veggie Patch by Nick Falk and Tony Flowers and Billy B. Brown: The Bully Buster by Sally Rippin.  (My six year old LOVES the Billy B. Brown books so I’m finally getting some cred with her!)
