Kelpie's Prize

The Kelpies Prize is an annual prize for new Scottish writing for children. Janis Mackay's novel Magnus Fin and the Ocean Quest won the 2009 prize with the author receiving a cheque for £2,000 at a packed award ceremony at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. The book will be published on 21 October 2009 and I'll be buying a copy for stock. For more details, including lists of past winners, see Floris Books' site.
