bits and pieces of news 

So A Boy and a Bear in a Boat was shortlisted for the Carnegie medal last week. Which is very splendid and enormously flattering but I won't go on about it too much here beyond saying: Yay! Go me!.

And, (for reasons that are not altogether unrelated to the foregoing) the publication of the paperback edition of BBB has been brought forward to, well, more or less now. It may or may not have a slightly arbitrary official release date attached to it at some point but essentially it's out now. Check your local independent bookshop, national chain or internet retailer of choice (or, you know, don't, because you may not want one, or you may already have the hardback, or you might want to borrow it from the library instead. You're under no obligation).

Anyway, the paperback cover looks something like this:

And the insides look very similar to those of the hardback except that the few colour illustrations that there were are now in monochrome.
