CBCA 2015 Shortlist

How can it possibly be a year since last year's Children's Book Council Awards? 

But it is...and here it is in all it's glory!
 I have read all these books but only reviewed two.
I will add to the list below as I write up the rest.

Rivertime

I think the illustrations in One Minute's Silence are extraordinary for the power of emotion the convey & I love the humour in Pig the Pug.
The Tea & Sugar Christmas was a fascinating story about a little known bush Christmas tradition & I love Graham Byrne's illustrations in Emu.
Noni the Pony Goes to the Beach has pranced into my heart this year & I hope that Rossell writes a follow-up to Withering-by-Sea sooner rather than later.

Which one's have you read?
Any favourite's?

    Great list of children's books....I'll see if any of these are available all the way here in The Netherlands!

    1. I've just started the older readers book, The Minnows - amazing writing, although the content might make it hard for school libraries to stock it.

      Hope you can find some of these in the Netherlands.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
