Huge congrats to our amazing ARA Deborah Abela. Not only was she shortlisted in the Older Fiction Section in the
KOALA (Kids Own Australian Literature Awards) Awards 2017
published by Penguin Random House, in paperback, for ages 8 - 12,
but even more importantly, she was given the
KOALA Legend award
for her work, multiple nominations over the years and service to the KOALA awards!
Think we'd all agree that an award was never more aptly named! Richly deserved, Deb!!
