Gina is excited to announce that Amazing Animals of Australia’s National Parks has been shortlisted for the 2017 Environment Award for Children’s Literature by the Wilderness Society, in the non-fiction category. Gina is over the moon that her book has received such a wonderful commendation. YAY!

Our shortlist for the 2017 Environment Award for Children’s Literature features wonderfully illustrated picture fiction, adventurous tales with conservation hijinks, and fact-filled nonfiction books that will feed children’s curiosity.”
