Achievement


There’s wonderful news for Buzz Worder, Lesley Gibbes. Her picture book Fluke, illustrated by Michelle Dawson (Working Title Press/Harper Collins), was awarded a Certificate of Commendation at the Whitley Awards by the Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales.

Fluke was judged by the society to be the Best Book in the category Young Children’s Book. Dingo by Claire Saxby & Tannya Harricks (Walker Books) was judged Best Book in the category Children’s Book.

The Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales’s Whitley Awards are a tribute to Gilbert Whitley, an eminent Australian ichthyologist. The awards are presented annually for outstanding publications (in printed or electronic form) that contain a significant amount of information relating to the fauna of the Australasian region. These publications may be highly technical works, or they may be for wider and more general readership. On the recommendations of the Whitley Review Committee, some publications are selected for presentation of a Certificate of Commendation at the Whitley Awards ceremony on Wednesday 3 October 2018.
