Hi everyone,

Norm and I have some excellent news to share for 2012. The Last Viking has been shortlisted for three awards!

  • 2012 Western Australian Young Readers’ Book Awards
  • 2012 Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature
  • 2012 Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators’ Crystal Kite Awards

It’s a great honour to have The Last Viking listed alongside books by Australian and international greats, like Shaun Tan, Bruce Whatley, Alison Lester and Chris van Allsburg.
