Go Sonya Hartnett!!

Sonya Hartnett has just won the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award given by the Swedish government for outstanding contributions to children’s literature. It comes with a prize of around USD800,000. No, I didn’t type that wrong.

Hartnett is not only one of Australia’s finest writers, she’s one of the best in the world. This is deeply awesome news.
