Hello all! Some belated good news to share...
Earlier this month 'Atlas of Animal Adventures' won the National Book Tokens Children's Travel Book of the Year category at the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards 2016!
It was a great surprise and honour to have won, and a really nice way to kick start the year. Big thanks again to Stanfords and National Book Tokens for a great evening, and for all their support of the book. The awards were announced at a gala dinner on 2nd February, and each winner was presented with a personalised antique globe trophy.
