Yeah! New Zealand Hall of Fame and The Call of the Kokako were included in the Storylines Notable Book List for 2012. It's a big thanks to the illustrators: Heather Arnold and Bruce Potter for their gorgeous artwork. Plus big thanks to the team at New Holland Publishers for believing in the books and putting the extra expense into them so they are hardbacks.
You can see what other books are notable here. Congrats to all the other authors, illustrators and publishers. Especially the other New Holland published book 'Party Food for Girls' by Alessandra Zecchini and her daughter Arantxa Zecchini Dowling. The book is a favourite of my daughters and her friends.
