The award, given annually for a distinguished contribution to New Zealand children’s literature, will be presented in Christchurch on 28 March.
“Andrew Crowe’s contribution to young New Zealanders’ knowledge of their country’s natural history has been unique and of long standing,” says Storylines Trust chairman, Dr Libby Limbrick. “His many books, both in design and content, are consistently attractive, informative and accessible to young and old alike.”
