Congratulations to all the winners.
Of the short listed books my favourites were E3 Call Home,(non fiction) Banquo's Son and The Crossing.(young adult fiction) I would have been hard pressed to choose between the two young adult books if I had been a judge so as only one could win I was happy with the judges decision.
However if you enjoy a novel with an historical theme then try TK Roxborough's Banquo's Son.
E3 Call Home, by Janet Hunt ticks all the boxes for a non--fiction picture book. It tells a true story about two bar-tailed godwits, with beautiful photography, diagrams and accessible text.
