UQP titles on the 2024 CBCA Notables List

We're thrilled to share the news that two UQP titles have been awarded places on the 2024 Children's Book Council Awards (CBCAs) list of Notable Books.

This years' theme, Reading is Magic, celebrates stories and their 'amazing power to transport minds.'

We are encouraging kids to be curious about the wonders in our world. It is a positive and affirming message for our young people. The magic of reading also lies in its power of enticement; a good story provokes conversations. Talking about the stories with others connects the reader with other readers. Wrapped around all of this are the "tricks" and skills of our amazing writers and illustrators, as they use all their powers of language and illustration to engage the reader in this world they are building.

This announcement was made online on Tuesday evening, 27/02/2024. Stay tuned, as shortlisted titles will be announced 19/03/2024.
