Well I never. I didn’t even know that the smashing team at Bloomsbury had entered our book into the brand new Sainsbury’s Children’s Book Awards, but There’s a Lion In My Cornflakes by me and that incredibly talented chap Jim Field has just won Best Picture Book. Apparently the judging panel said ‘There’s a Lion in My Cornflakes was the absolute stand-out picture book, both in terms of story and illustration’.
Here’s the announcement in The Bookseller. I guess this means that I can officially call myself Award Winning Author Michelle Robinson now. I’m off to make myself a medal out of a milk bottle top. Thank you, Sainsury’s, Bloomsbury and the one and only Jim Field.
