Hedgehugs shortlisted for Heart of Hawick Picture Book Award

Its going to be a right old ‘David and Goliath’ battle next May in the finals of the ‘Heart of Hawick’ picture book awards. Our lovely book ‘Hedgehugs’ by Lucy Tapper and Steve Wilson is up against David Walliam’s first picture book ‘The slightly Annoying Elephant’

“David is currently the fastest growing children’s author in the UK. His books have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim and it comes as no surprise that countless broadsheet reviewers have compared him to his all-time hero, Roald Dahl.”

The finals take place in May and all short listed authors and illustrators are encouraged to attend. It will be fantastic if David is able to come along, its a great opportunity.The Heart of Hawick Children’s Book Award aims to get children excited about books and reading – for fun, learning, confidence and better life chances.

Win or lose we are all thrilled here at Maverick to be short listed and please wish Lucy and Steve lots of luck… it seems a fair battle to me!…Elephants are jolly big; but hey you can’t get much cuter than a ‘Hedgehug!’
