I NEED a Parrot Wins CBCA Picture Book of the Year
Congratulations to Chris McKimmie for winning the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Picture Book of the Year award with I NEED a Parrot!
This is a book about wanting and needing – what a child wants and what a wild bird needs – the message conveyed with warmth, subtlety and humour.
I NEED a Parrot is a strongly child-centred and focused book inspired and informed by Chris’s sensitive and open attitude to his children and grandchildren.
Check out his hilarious Colin Cockroach Goes to Caloundra – out this month.
You can take a look at the story on Lauren & Anthony Tube’s Story Surprise!
