Black Cockatoo gets all the right attention

By Hakea Hustler & Carl Merrison

We are pretty proud of our novella Black Cockatoo and all its recent attention! We’ve been nominated for the Readings Childrens Book of the Year Award, CBCA Young Readers category, ABIA Small Publishers Young Reader Award. We’ve also been included in the Qld Library Summer Reading Club 2018 and the NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge.

We’ve also been stoked by the way teachers, schools and Storyboard have backed us and welcomed us!

A huge thank you to our publishing team especially Rachel, Lisa and Caitlyn from Magabala Books and Dub Leffler our illustrator. We wouldn’t have had the confidence to even submit without the support and advice of our editor Shel Sweeney from A Worded Life. A big thanks to Gabby and the Storyboard team for taking us in with open arms to do school visits.

We’d love your help sharing the word about our book! Share with your teaching friends- it comes with a free comprehensive differentiated teaching pack.

Share with your students and children- invite them to nominate us for the Inkys and KOALA awards. Share with your author and industry friends- we’d love to network and support other authors and illustrators!
