CHANDLER, AZ (November, 2017) – The judges of the 2017 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards contest, which recognizes excellence in all genres of literature have spoken, and Magic Fish Dreaming by June Perkins, and illustrated by Helene Magisson, won 2nd place in the Children’s Poetry, Environment, Book Trailer and tied for second in Children’s Picture Books for Children 6 years and over as well as a special mention in the Cultural Diversity category.
“Winning any place in the Royal Dragonfly Contest is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the Dragonfly Book Awards, a minimum score is required before a First or Second Place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the sole entry in a category,” explains Linda F. Radke, president of the Dragonfly Book Awards program. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”
Magic Fish Dreaming is a poetic celebration and exploration of nature, people and imagination in Far North Queensland. Encourages children and families everywhere to hunt for their own nature-based or urban poems. It retails for $18 and can be purchased within Australia and International Distribution is currently in process.
