Banquo's Son Shortlisted for the NZ Post Children's Book Awards

Wahoooooo. What an absolute thrill to receive this nomination. I am in excellent company and I am delighted to get the nod.
The other finalists in my category are:
My buddy Brian Falkner for Brainjack

My dear friend and mentor, Fleur Beale for End of the Alphabet

Mandy Hager, for The Crossing

And, finally, Lia Hills The Beginner's Guide to Living

A strong race if I do say so myself. I loved reading my fellow nominees' books. Let the fun times begin.
