I am so, SO flipping excited to announce that my book Fish-Head Steve has been shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013! And as far as I know, it's the first time a comic book has been shortlisted for the prize! DOUBLE WHAMMY!
I'm in the 'funniest book for children aged 7 - 14' category against five other books (all of which look to be STRONG competition). You can read more about the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and what it means HERE www.booktrust.org.uk/prizes/4, winners are chosen by a panel of judges and 200 schoolchildren in December I believe.
Just being shortlisted is an AMAZING honour, and I'm dead chuffed about it all. A million thank yous to everyone on The DFC (Ben and Will especially), everyone at David Fickling Books, Jodie my agent, and everyone who's ever read Fish-Head Steve.
Here's to comics, fish-heads, and funny books! Keep your fingers crossed! ^_^
