Every two years, IBBY (The International Board on Books for Young People) publish an Honour List of outstanding, recently published books honouring writers, illustrators and translators from IBBY member countries.
These books are considered the best in children's literature from each country and suitable for publication throughout the world, providing insight into the diverse cultural, political and social settings in which children live and grow. (If you are interested in the work of IBBY Australia visit their website).
This year two Australian books were included on this honour list - Glenda Millard’s novel A small free kiss in the Dark and Gregory Rogers picture book The Hero of little Street. It’s fabulous that we have Australian books recognised internationally! Our congratulations and a reminder that three limited edition prints are available from Greg’s wonderful series of wordless picture books.
