2 x EK Books make the shortlist for the West Australian Young Readers’ Book Award 2016!

An Aussie Year, written by Tania McCartney and illustrated by Tina Snerling, and Anzac Ted, written and illustrated by Belinda Landsberry, have both made the shortlist for West Australian Young Readers’ Book Award 2016 in the category of best picture book. The Award operates by inviting young readers to nominate, through their libraries, books that they have enjoyed. These nominations are then considered by the WAYRBA committee. We love these books and it is good to know that the audience for whom they were written loves them too. Congratulations to Tania, Tina, Belinda and EK Books publisher Anouska Jones!

What the media are saying about Anzac Ted:

The Area News, Australia, May 2018

“Anzac Ted is about a teddy bear who is looking a bit torn and tattered, but he has a pretty special history,” – Click here to read in full

Carousel Magazine UK, December 2015

“this delightful tale told in verse is very much about not judging by appearances and the hurt it can cause … the watercolour illustrations are simply beautiful.” 

New Zealand Heritage Magazine, September 2015

“…tells a heart-warming story about a teddy bear passed down from grandfather to grandson.”

The School Librarian UK, July 2015

I really loved this, I found it very moving and yet it gets its message across in an accessible way for child audiences.  Although it is obviously more relevant for an Australian school audience, I think its underpinning messages would be understood by children in the UK … a good addition to existing school books on the First World War.”

The Scotsman, July 2015

“Belinda Landsberry’s charming Australian picture book pays tribute to the Anzac forces of the First World War, legends even in their own lifetime, and now a vital part of the centenary commemorations. The book, with its expressive hero and evocative illustrations, is also a reminder to young children not to judge on appearances.”

Boomerang Magazine, April 2015

Perfect for reading aloud with someone you cherish or soaking up the atmospheric sepia illustrations alone.”
