TSUNAMI GIRL SHORTLISTED FOR THE CARNEGIE MEDAL!
The Carnegie Medal (for writers) and the Greenaway Award (for illustrators) are like the BAFTAS or Booker of the children’s book world – so to have a book on this illustrious shortlist is a huge honour. We are so thrilled for author, Julian Sedgwick, whose powerful book Tsunami Girl has stolen hearts and minds alike – a beautifully-told story that is illuminated with incredible manga spreads by artist Chie Kutsuwada.
This is a story of a fifteen-year-old’s recovery from loss and trauma, through creativity, the ghost world and sheer courage. We are so proud to be its publisher – never before has a book containing manga been shortlisted for the Carnegie, and the originality and beauty of the writing shines through.
