The Announcement of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award at Bologna Book Fair

In Shaun Tan's absence at this year's Bologna Children's Book Fair, Ann James and Ann Haddon from Books Illustrated were delighted to receive the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award on his behalf.

For those who could not be there we thought you might like to see some photographs of this very exciting achievement.
