OneTree House, winner of the 2018 Children's Publisher of the Year (Oceania section) at the Bologna Book Fair, is to publish Bonjour Lucy Bee! Obviously I couldn't be more pleased. OneTree House won this year's award for their creative and publishing excellence, and for their originality, professional and intellectual skills. The award is also designed to foster a mutual exchange of knowledge and ideas among different nations and areas of the world. It seems that Bonjour Lucy Bee may fit into that aim quite well as it explores the social and cultural differences and similarities between its main characters, Lucy from New Zealand, Qasim from Afghanistan and the French cousins in Burgundy. Watch this space... next time I write I hope to have a date for publication.
