We were also delighted to hear that two more of Alex’s picture books have been nominated for awards: My Mum Has X-Ray Vision has been shortlisted for the¬†Portsmouth Book Award 2011 and¬†Egg has been shortlisted for the prestigious¬†Sheffield Children’s Book Award 2011.¬†Egg stars¬†the fiendish Foxy DuBois, who does her best to ‘look after’ innocent Egg. Little does she know that this egg is full of big surprises!

Fingers crossed everyone!
