Booked Out would like to extend a huge congratulations to the wonderful Glenda Millard, who has just received The Prime Minister’s Literary Award for her gorgeous picture book Pea Pod Lullaby. The book was illustrated by Stephen Michael King.
From over 500 entries to 30 shortlisted books, 6 titles were recognised as some of Australia’s greatest literature of the year.
Chair of the Young Adult and Children’s Literature Judging Panel Margot Hillel said that the winning books dealt with “issues that profoundly affect humanity… there’s a variety of ideas, of narrative techniques, of illustration techniques, which makes them very, very different, but all equally interesting.”
Congratulations, Glenda, on this incredible achievement!
