The Children's Book Council of Australia 2010 Book of the Year announced--and one my favorite books of the year wins!

It is so very nice when a book one loves, a book one thinks is just the cat's pajamas, gets a major book award. Darius Bell and the Glitter Pool, by Odo Hirsch (my review), which comes out here in the US in September, just won the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year award.

Here are all the winners.


  1. Just read your review and will have to order this! Fantastical houses are a love of mine. Thanks, Charlotte.

  2. You're very welcome! I hope it pleases (since you are a fan of fantastical houses, I bet it will).

  3. I just got a review copy of this...I wasn't interested by the blurb, but if you say it is good...

  4. I'll be curious to see what you think, Jennifer!
