Rocky Mountain Book Award Shortlist

We're thrilled to announce that two Annick Press titles have been shortlisted for the Rocky Mountain Book Award: Born to Write, by Charis Cotter, and Kaboom! by Gillian Richardson.

Born to Write is the story of what six famous authors--Madeleine L’Engle, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Philip Pullman, Christopher Paul Curtis, C.S. Lewis, and E.B. White--were like as children. How did their childhood experiences and influences shape the writers they would become?

Kaboom! takes young readers through the exciting world of explosions, from man-made blasts to those that occur in nature. From popcorn to fireworks to volcanoes, readers will explore how and why things blow up.

Congratulations to all the shortlisted authors and illustrators!
