Where my Margaret Mahy peoples at?
I don't usually pay too too much attention to the world of children's awards (always excepting the biggies which I follow like my life depending on it). But this is Margaret Mahy we're talking about. The queen of the kooky and the absolute weirdest wonder of the Western world. She's just garnered herself a lovely little Hans Christian Andersen Award thanks to the plucky kids at IBBY. Who says there's no justice in the world? Now go out and reread The Changeover as soon as you possibly can.
