‘Where We Begin’ and ‘There’s a Zoo in My Poo’ listed as CBCA Notable Books

The Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) has announced its list of Notable Books for 2021. We are excited to annouce that two Pan Macmillan books have been included.

Where We Begin by Christie Nieman in the Older Readers category.
Seventeen-year-old Anna is running into the night. Fleeing her boyfriend, her mother, and everything she has known.
She is travelling into the country, to the land and the grandparents she has never met, looking for answers to questions that have never been asked.
For every family has secrets.
But some secrets – once laid bare – can never be forgiven.

There’s A Zoo in My Poo by Felice Jacka and Rob Craw for the Eve Pownall Award for information books.
Did you know that trillions of tiny bugs live in and on all of us? And there’s a Zoo of bugs in our poo. But which are the good bugs and which are the bad? What should we eat to keep our good bugs happy and our body strong?
Get to the guts of what you need to know about you and your poo.
Professor Felice Jacka is a world expert in the field of Nutritional Psychiatry and gut health. Teacher and musician Rob Craw is a world expert at drawing bugs!
They want kids to know all about the amazing stuff going on in their bodies.
The Notable Books list is also the longlist for the CBCA Book of the Year Awards. The 2021 shortlist will be announced on Tuesday, 30 March, and the winners on Friday, 20 August. For more information about the CBCA Awards, see the CBCA website.
