I’m thrilled to announce that my latest book, Don’t Touch That Toad and Other Strange Things Adults Tell You, has been nominated for the 2011-2012 Hackmatack Award! This award is the Atlantic region’s reader’s choice award.
The Hackmatack Award was established with young readers in mind, to promote literacy and advanced reading in Atlantic Canada. Each year thousands of grade 4-6 students from across the Maritime provinces read a selection of nominated titles, and vote for the one they like the best. What a honour!
