Speaking of awards, The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy is on the shortlist for the 2011 Canadian Library Association Book of the Year Award for Children.
I’m happy and honoured that Prinny’s story is one of the ten books chosen for this list.
When the book tour is over, I’ll be staying in Toronto with friends (what’s left of me!), and attending the Silver Birch Award Ceremony at the Harbourfront on May 12. The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy is nominated for the Children’s Choice Award!
I’m looking forward to it. Last year, it was an eye-opener – all those kids, all so enthusiastic about books.
