'An Anzac Tale' received accolades from two different directions the other week. On Tuesday April 8, the Children's Book Council of Australia listed it as a Notable Book of 2014 in an unprecedented THREE categories; Picture Book, Information Book, and Books for Younger Readers. Three days later, the book was awarded a Bronze Ledger for excellence in Australian Comics.
The Ledgers have been revived after a five year hiatus and the recent awards ceremony in Melbourne gave out gongs to work published in the interim years. I was absolutely gobsmacked to hear the news 'In For The Krill' #1 was given a Gold Ledger for 2008.
