The Bisto Awards for 2009/2010 were announced on 24th May and the winners are.....
Mary-Louise Fitzpatrick for her beautiful and touching picturebook 'There'. Marie-Louise not only won the Bisto Book of the Year Award, but also the Bisto Honour award for Illustration. Well done!!!
The Bisto Honour Award went to Siobhan Dowd for her insightful 'Solace of the Road'.
The Eilis Dillon Award Award went to 'Third Pig Detective Agency' by Bob Burke.
And the Children's Choice Award was given to Jane Mitchell for the excellent 'Chalkline'.
It was brilliant to see so many unusual choices on the shortlist this year, and very worthy choices, I have to say. Heartfelt congratulations to all!!!
