In October, we blogged about a indie children’s book award called the Gittle List. Run by US children’s author Aviva Gittle, the competition is quite unique in that it’s aimed solely at self-published authors of illustrated children’s books.
Well, here we are a month later with some very exciting news: one of our publications, the children’s picture book Go To Sleep! by Marion Adams, has been announced as one of the winners of the award!
This is what Aviva Gittle had to say about the book:
“Just darn funny with sweet, fluffy illustrations by Ms. Wills. The best part of the story is Tansy speculating what may have happened to the missing sheep. Kids will enjoy the opportunity at the end of the story to properly count the sheep.”
Marion and the rest of the team at Full Media Ltd are thrilled with this win, especially as it comes so quickly after the book’s last accolade, a bronze medal in the Moonbeam award for best ebook (it was also recently awarded the prestigious Kirkus star for Books of Exceptional Merit).
Many thanks to Aviva Gittle for selecting our book and for all the promotion she has done for the book as a result. To view the other nine worthy winners of this year’s Gittle List competition, click here.
