Awards attention for ‘Catching Teller Crow’

Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina’s YA novel Catching Teller Crow (Allen & Unwin) has won a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award and received a shortlisting for the Indie Book Awards. The YA novel, which recently sold into the UK and US, is pitched as a ‘totally addictive ghost story, crime story and thriller, told half in prose and half in verse, from two of the most exciting Aboriginal voices in Australia’.

Glenda Millard and Stephen Michael King’s picture book Pea Pod Lullaby (Allen & Unwin) and Richard Yaxley’s YA novel This is My Song (Scholastic) have also picked up prizes at the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards.
