For a full list of the CBCA Book of the Year winners and honour books, check out the CBCA website.

This year we thrilled to be sending authors from around the country and overseas into schools here there and everywhere! If you are hosting an author, don’t be shy to tell us how it all goes!

This morning Eltham North Primary School hosted storyteller Anne E Stewart and had this to say:

She was absolutely fantastic!  The children and staff alike were mesmerised by her story telling and richness of stories.

Please pass on our greatest thanks to her for such an inspiring and wonderful gift.

Thanks to Anthea Eames for sharing her feedback!

So, here’s to it!

Happy Book Week everybody!
