Hachette Australia is delighted to congratulate our authors listed in the CBCA Notables list for 2017:
CBCA PICTURE BOOK OF THE YEAR
CBCA BOOK OF THE YEAR: EARLY CHILDHOOD
WRITING FOR YOUNG ADULTS
In 1946 the Children’s Book Council of Australia established the annual CBCA Book of the Year Awards to promote children's books of high literary and artistic quality. These awards affirm the quality of some of Australia’s most creative people, and provide a boost to their capacity to devote time to their craft.
The 2017 shortlist will be announced Tuesday 28 March. We wish Maxine, Van, Libby, Phil, Charlotte, Tom and Zana the very best of luck!
