Helen's is the first Marsh Award to be given for a translation from an Asian language. It is also the first Marsh to be won by an SCBWI member, since Translator became a member category in 2014.

BRONZE AND SUNFLOWER is published by Walker in the UK. It will be published by Candlewick in the US in March 2017. Here is the starred Publisher's Weekly review: http://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-7636-8816-5
