Kathleen Dixon (kiwikathleen) | 1476 comments I've read Monkey Boy and Maori art for kids and agree wholeheartedly with their wins. I've just brought Singing Home the Whale home and my boss says I'll love it. I've glanced at the other winners and have them on my list for reading with the grandchildren.

Haven't read any of the Children's Choice ones, but know they're popular.


Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 979 comments I'm thinking Motiti Blue & the Oil Spill looks most promising.
