Words of award winners

Upon being informed that they had won the latest Chocolate Lily Reader’s Choice Awards, a few of our winning authors expressed their happiness.

Meg Tillie writes: “Oh my goodness! I was honoured to be nominated. I am BLOWN AWAY to have actually won! This glorious news came at such a wonderful time.”

Dan Bar-el writes: “I’m very thrilled with winning this award. I don’t think I’d been on a tour in which my presence was so highly anticipated by students at every school. At times the excitement was palpable. This has everything to do with the program you’ve created. Thank you again for creating an opportunity for children to really engage in the stories.”
