Pipped to the post by David. :)

But I will wholeheartedly second his congratulations.

Frances had won the Costa Award for Best Children's Book which was nice, but to win the Book of the Year Award is really nice. :D

And IMHO, award winning or not, 'The Lie Tree' is a stonkingly good read.

I actually found out about this from the radio at 6.30am. There was a quick soundbite from here. She certainly sounded a lot more animated than she did at the Con.
