Very exciting news –
Sydney Smith has won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for his illustrations in Town is by the Sea. The award is considered the “gold standard in children’s literature” and Sydney follows in the footsteps of such greats as Quentin Blake, Lauren Child, and Chris Riddell.
My heartiest congratulations goes out to Sydney for his stellar illustrations!
They have brought my story of a Cape Breton mining town to vivid life.
