Congratulations to the 2011 winners of the NZ Post Childrens Book Awards

The New Zealand Post Children’s Book of the Year Award 2011 has been announced, it's.....
'The Moon and Farmer McPhee', by Margaret Mahy and David Elliot
A heart-warming story, with lots of fun wordplay, this story is about a grumpy farmer whose animals keep him awake at night singing and dancing by the light of the moon. Eventually he is won over by the moon and the animals and learns how to be happy.
