I am thrilled to say that my picture book The Were-Nana is one of the finalists for the 2010 Sakura Medal. Books are selected by international school librarians across Japan, students then read the books and vote for their favourites during the last week of April and the winner is announced in May. There are some incredibly starry books on the list and I feel very honoured just to even be in their company. It's exciting knowing children in other countries are reading my books.
