SCBWI - Crystal Kite Awards
Updated: Aug 4, 2020
Today I voted in the Crystal Kite Awards as a member of the SCBWI.
There were so many great entries, but I went for one that really struck a chord for me as someone with a soft spot for the elderly.
The Tide by Clare Walsh is a charming, beautifully illustrated picture book helping families deal with dementia.
This synopsis is from the SCBWI Crystal Kite Awards page:
Grandad’s memories are like the tide. Sometimes near and full of life. Other times far away and distant. Despite the challenges one thing is for certain. The girl loves her Grandad and her Grandad loves her. A story to help families live well with dementia. The Tide is illustrated by Ashling Lindsey and was published with Little Tiger Press in May 2019.
