PaperTigers was a nominating body for this year’s Astrid Lindgren Memorial award, the world’s largest prize for children’s and young adult literature, so we were definitely looking forward to the award announcement. We got to the seating area early and it turned out that we were sitting right next to Kitty! It was most exciting to see her reaction when her name was announced. Definitely one of our highlights from the Fair!
