Lari Don's collection of awards grows - and this time it's with a picture book about a toddler whose eccentric pronunciation sends her babysitter into a frenzy. Orange Juice Peas, illustrated by Lizzie Wells was published last year by Floris Books in the Picture Kelpie series.
The Dundee Picture Book Award is run by Moira Foster and Elaine Halliburton from the Dundee City Council Educational Development Service and involves children at the upper end of primary school sharing books with children at the lower end of primary school. Both groups of readers are balloted on their favourites, and this year it was Orange Juice Peas that came out on top.
The presentation is done entirely by the children who champion each shortlisted book and interview each author.
