Hare And Ruru’s An AWARD WINNER!
What a fabulous evening we had at the Book Awards for Children and Young Adults in Wellington last night.
🎉 We are elated, proud, thrilled, grateful (and more) that Hare and Ruru by Laura Shallcrass won the Russell Clark Award for Best Illustrated Book.
“The book’s beautifully delivered world and message made it stand out for the judges.”
This confirms what we already knew, that Laura is a superbly talented individual.
Thank you to the NZ Book Awards Trust and to all the readers, libraries, schools and book sellers that support New Zealand writers. Congratulations to all the talented winners.
Laura’s second book, What Colour Is The Sky? Is due out in November. You can pre-order now, click here for more info ⛅️
