Codebusters up for an Award!

Well, who’d’ve thunk it? My little book Codebusters is up for an award! Many thanks to the North Somerset Teachers’ Book Awards, where I’m on the long list of the ‘Read Aloud’ category. Go Codebusters Go! (and well done to all the other worthy nominees too. You’re awesome).

This is my first ever award nom for one of my books, so I’m pretty darn chuffed.
