Whoop whoop!
Don't Dip your Chips in your Drink Kate got Highly commended for the Picture Book catagory and the Community Library award!

here is a shakey movie of what the kids had to say about it....
(I wish i wasn't a sensitive little artist about the fact that the favourite page was one with hardly any illustration!)

piccy of Caryl Hart and me with important people (the one with the nice bit of bling is the Mayor of Sheffield i think!)

and of all the shortlisty people!
inc "Morris the Mankiest monster" illustrator
Sarah McIntyre
,"The Great Dog Bottom Swap" by Peter Bently and Mei Matsuoka and "Dear Miss" author and illustrator Amy Husband.
Well done to all... was so amazing to be amongst such a talented gaggle of authors and illustrators.

Caryl and I scoffing paper cakes after a busy crafty work shop in the Winter Gardens (brrrr)
