It’s that time of year again. The Children’s Book Council of Australia has announced its Notable and Shortlisted books in their 2013 Book of the Year Awards.

If, like me, you’re always on the lookout for quality books for kids, click on the following links for this year’s  CBCA Notable Books and Shortlisted books.

It was a big thrill to see Trust Me Too make the Notable list for younger readers. The Ford St Publishing anthology included my Killer Stories as one of more than fifty contributions from some of Australia’s top writers and illustrators for kids.

It caps a great year for Trust Me Too which  has also been chosen for The White Ravens 2013, an annual selection of the top 250 books for young people from around the world prepared by the International Youth Library in Germany.

Congratulations to all Notable and Shortlisted authors and illustrators, and especially to the ever-affable Gus Gordon, whose short-listed picture book Herman and Rosie  I was privileged to launch in Brisbane last year. Always nice to see the good guys get a guernsey!
