The Insecto-Files Nominated for the Silver Birch

I'm so excited! I just found out that my book The Insecto-Files has just been shortlisted for the Silver Birch Award. I've had two previous Silver Birch winners - Boredom Blasters in 2006 and Secret Agent Y.O.U. in 2008. Will The Insecto-Files make it a hat trick???

If you're not familiar with the Silver Birch, it's part of Ontario's Forest of Trees Reading Program. More than 40,000 kids across the province participate, reading and choosing their favourite books from shortlists of ten. Kids vote in the spring, and the winners are announced at an incredible ceremony in May. For writer-attendees, it's like being a rock star! Fans waving banners and begging for autographs scream out their favorite authors names and books. Thousands of kids fill the space with an ungodly roar - all for the love of reading! Check out the program and see this year's lists of nominees at all reading levels here.
