The CBCA Book of the Year shortlist has been announced. I was pleased to see that Dragon Moon (the third in the Dragonkeeper trilogy) has been nominated – it is excellent and kids love it for its accessible narrative style and compelling storyline.

I’ve only got a few of the others so shall have to get cracking to locate them all as soon as I get back to school.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
