I had a fantastic surprise this weekend as Call Me Lion was reviewed in The Guardian by Imogen Russell Williams. This is a really BIG DEAL. Very few newspapers now feature book reviews and even less children's book reviews which means a large national paper like this can make a real difference in terms of a book's notoriety.
I'm thrilled that Call Me Lion was not only mentioned but received such high praise. In The Guardian's August list of 'Best New Children's Books' Call Me Lion was featured alongside a very prgistidegous list of authors, including fellow SCBWI members, Patrice Lawrence and Joe Coelho (who, if you don't know, is the current Children's Laureate).
It's thrilling news and could mean a real difference in both sales and reach to readers. As you already know Call Me Lion is all about creating positive ripples. It's a book that can only do good things in this world we all share.
My grin could not be wider.
