It was lovely to see local children’s book writer Bill Nagelkerke being awarded the very prestigious Margaret Mahy Award last week.
While I didn’t get to Auckland and witness the presentation myself, a librarian friend, Zac from Zackids at Christchurch City Libraries did and took this great photo. Thanks, Zac!
We have plenty of Bill Nagelkerke’s books here at school.
My favourite is Old Bones. It is a very cool ghost story set in Christchurch. Sadly, much of what is written about in the book has changed because of the earthquakes but that just makes the book even more interesting. Come in and see me if you want to read any of these books.
