Open Right

It was great to see so many of our authors represented at the YABBA Awards this morning at Camberwell Girls Grammar School.

These awards are special because they are voted on by Aussie kids themselves – no adults are involved! It was fantastic to see so many kids excited to see their favourite books honoured.

Congratulations to the winners:
