One of my favourite books to illustrate last year was ‘The Black and White Club’, written by Alice Hemming. I am now extremely happy to hear that it has been nominated for The Portsmouth Book Award, 2014.
The Portsmouth School Library Service had been looking at suitable books throughout 2013 and out of 80 books, and much debate and discussion, a shortlist of four books was agreed, with ‘The Black and White Club’ being one of them!
The 4 final books will be judged by school children from 29 Portsmouth Schools, thats almost 2000 Year 1 pupils!
Alice Hemming has also been visiting schools and book shops recently, inspiring new young authors...http://www.maverickbooks.co.uk/events/alice-hemming-inspiring-future-authors/
