The SCBWI is pleased to announce the winners of the Sue Alexander and Promising Picture Book Awards.
The Treasure of the Foggy Isles: Toby Storm is failing pirate school. He doesn’t like sword fights, he’d rather read in the crow’s nest than keep lookout, his “ARR!” makes him sound like a landlubber and his sidekick is a chicken instead of a parrot. When his teacher decides that a treasure hunt on a real pirate ship is just what he needs, he accidentally boards the wrong ship. Adventure, hilarity and growth ensue. The Treasure of the Foggy Isles is bound to be a hit with young readers and pirates everywhere!
