Nicola and I were very excited to hear that our book My Dad Is A Bear was shortlisted for the Prime Minister's Awards!

The Awards ceremony was held at Carriageworks in Sydney. It was great fun and we met all sorts of interesting people including Ross Coulthart, whose book Charles Bean was joint winner in the Australian History Prize and David Metzenthen, whose book One Minute's Silence - beautifully illustrated by Michael Camilleri- won the Children's Fiction section.
