Pals Doing Well

Eileen Kernaghan's Alchemist's Daughter has been nominated for a Saskatchewan Book Award--however, every time i try to write all this in and put links and such it all disappears, so if you are interested, do a search yourself! Meanwhile, this DOES bring to four the nominations for this book--Nominated for the 2005 Sheila A. Egoff Children's Literature Prize. Nominated for the 2006 Manitoba Young Readers' Choice Award. Short-listed for the 2005 Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Award, the Aurora, for best long-form work in English.

And Gail Nyoka has been nominated for a Governor General's Award for her book Mella and the N'anga, an African Tale. weird things keep happening to destroy this entry, too, so if no links show up go ahead and do a search on the book and the awards. i don't dare try again here!
