At The Beach: Non-Fiction Finalist In Children’s Book Award

At The Beach - Non-Fiction Finalist In The 2013 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards

Craig Potton Publishing is absolutely delighted to announce that another of its titles has been recognised in a prestigious national award. At The Beach: Explore & discover the New Zealand seashore by Gillian Candler and Ned Barraud, has been announced as a non-fiction finalist for the 2013 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards.

The 2013 judges were very impressed by the variety of books that made up the finalists of this year’s awards and chief judge Bernard Beckett says ‘it suggests we have a group of New Zealand writers who are confident enough to pursue their own interests’. In all, 19 books have been selected as finalists across four categories: best picture book, junior fiction, young adult and non-fiction.

Gillian and Ned are currently working on their second title in the Explore & Discover series, In the Garden, which will be published by Craig Potton Publishing in October 2013.

The winners from each category will be announced in June at an award ceremony to be held in Christchurch.

Gillian Candler was the convenor of judges for the 2012 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards, and was a secondary-school teacher for many years before moving into educational publishing with Learning Media. There she worked as an editor and project manager and eventually became CEO. She currently works as an educational publishing consultant from her home in Pukerua Bay, where she explores the beach most days. Ned Barraud is a talented illustrator with a passion for sea creatures. His work has been frequently published in the School Journal, and he illustrated The Earthquake and the Butterfly (2012). He works at Weta Digital as a texture artist and lives in Wellington, spending lots of time exploring the seashore with his three young children.
