Book of the Year 2022!!
I can’t quite believe that both The Adventures of Poppy and Lord Ted stories have now also won The Golden Wizard Book Prize BOOK OF THE YEAR for 2022!!
What an amazing achievement to be recognised as a story that ‘stood out from the rest’ and is a ‘magical read that is inspiring children's imaginations worldwide’ says Louise Jane, CEO of the Golden Wizard Book Prize. The judging team are made up of qualified childcare practitioners, preschool teachers, early years professionals, award-winning authors, illustrators, and professional writers with a vast knowledge of the book industry so I’m overwhelmed I have been chosen out of all the book prize winners.
I have asked the Golden Wizard team to donate my prize money to the Book Trust Christmas appeal that is trying to send 16,000 surprise book gifts this festive season to children who need them most. Book gifts will be sent to children in care and to children via food banks and other community organisations helping families facing financial challenges – the prize money will go a very long way indeed!!
What a great way to end 2022 – bring on 2023!
