Louie the Pirate Chef chosen for White Ravens catalogue

This news is a few weeks old, but:

Louie the Pirate Chef, written by yours truly and illustrated by Ben Wood, has been selected for a place in the prestigious White Ravens Catalogue for 2011.

Every year, the good folks at the International Youth Library in Germany select 250 recently published children’s books that they consider noteworthy and feel ‘deserve a wider reception on account of their universal theme and/or their exceptional and often innovative artistic and literary style and design’. The selection features titles from all over the world and is presented at the annual Bologna Book Fair in Italy.

Looking at the other Australian authors chosen reveals that I’m in some pretty formidable company: Sonya Hartnett, Carole Wilkinson and Hazel Edwards, to name just a few.¬†Very exciting!
