The CBCA shortlist is announced!

Congratulations to all authors who have made it to the shortlist — check it out here.

We are especially delighted to congratulate the following authors, editors and illustrators who are good pals of ours:

Melissa Keil – ‘The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl’
Tristan Bancks – ‘Two Wolves’
Freya Blackwood – ‘The Cleo Stories: The Necklace and the Present’, ‘Go to Sleep Jessie!’ AND ‘My Two Blankets’
Trace Balla – ‘Rivertime’
Michael Camilleri – ‘One Minute’s Silence’
Glenda Millard – ‘The Duck and the Darklings’
Jackie French – ‘Fire’
Demet Divaroren & Amra Pajalic – ‘Coming of Age: Growing up Muslim in Australia’

It’s always an impossible task to pick a book cover to feature. We had to go with a cover by Freya Blackwood since she managed to illustrate three of the books on this year’s shortlist! Wow, go Freya!

We look forward to hearing which books win the top prizes in August!
