Prestigious Awards to David Elliot’s Snark!

David Elliot’s  lavishly illustrated Snark: Being a true history of the expedition that discovered the Snark and the Jabberwock … and its tragic aftermath, published by Otago University Press, has taken not one, but two of New Zealand’s most prominent Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. Enthusiastically reviewed both on our blog and the Knight Letter (KL 98:43), where it also provided the cover illustration, the book has won both the Margaret Mahy Book of the Year Award  and the Russell Clark Award for Illustration for 2017, announced on Monday evening in Wellington.

Our sincerest congratulations to David, and our highest recommendation to all Carrollians to aquire a copy of this book! (You can get it from the distributors for the same price as on Amazon.)
