2013 Branford Boase Award

Congratulations to Dave Shelton. Dave just tonight won the 2013 Branford Boase Award for most outstanding debut children's novel. His book is the wonderful, gentle, quirky and thoughtful A Boy, A Bear and a Boat. David Fickling was also honoured for his editing with this award.
The Branford Boase Award is the only award that acknowledges, not only the author for exceptional crafting of a novel, but the all-important role of the editor in nurturing new talent.
