Wow, I wasn’t expecting this! The Trouble in Tune Town has just been named Joint Winner, Best Children’s Illustrated E-Book, Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) 2018. Great timing for the book launch on 6 May at 2pm at the National Library of Australia. The book, my first, was a labour of love in so many ways, and I’m thrilled that it has received this international recognition.
