I am so excited to report that Kumari, Goddess of Gotham has been longlisted for this year’s Doncaster Book Award along with Eoin Colfer’s ‘Airman,’ Darren Shan’s ‘Demon Apocalypse,’ Charlie Higson’s ‘Hurricane Gold’ and Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Born to Run’ amongst a host of other fabulous authors and titles. What I particularly like about this award is that no adults are involved – it’s strictly chosen by kids and they are the only ones who can vote for their favourite. For more about it click below:
