Poetry Short List
The Thing That Mattered Most is on the short list for the CLPE Poetry Award. (That's the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education, if, like me, you didn't know) According to Fiona Waters, one of the judges:
"The shortlist for the CLPE Poetry Award 2007 is a very strong one. These titles stood out immediately and we were very impressed by the high standard of both the content and presentation in all six; books to get excited about, unlike so many of those submitted."
I'm off to order another copy now, since someone who should know better nicked mine. It really is a lovely book!Joan.
