This Little Pebble shortlisted for the English 4-11 Picture Book Awards 2017 Apr 17 2017


Today in the office we received great news - This Little Pebble, authored by Anna Claybourne and illustrated by our very own Advocate artist Sally Garland, was shortlisted for the English Association's award for 4-11 Picture Books! Published by Franklin Watts (an imprint of Hachette Children's Group) this book uses a simple pebble as a narrative jumping off point for exploring rocks - where they come from, the rock cycle, earthquakes and volcanos, etc.

The narrative introduced and the exciting writing style of the book makes it feel more like an adventure than a chore to read. In fact, we dare say we've never seen rocks been made more exciting! If you're interested in buying it for yourself, This Little Pebble can be purchased on Amazon right now! And as always, if you'd like to see more of Sally's work please visit her online portfolio.
