I am delighted that How the Borks Became, written by Jonathan Emmett and illustrated by ME, has won best early years book at the STEAM Children’s Book Prize. Nice.
The idea behind the STEAM prize is to celebrate children’s books that highlight the importance of science, technology, engineering, arts and maths. I’m really pleased that The Borks won, not just because I love winning things (which I do), but because in a world where people are trying to tell me the earth is flat and that evaluation isn’t a thing we all need to learn some SCIENCE. Also, so far this is the only book where I’ve been allowed to draw a sassy Darwin giving a thumbs up.
The overall prize was won by Christopher Edge for The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day. Good job Christopher, Darwin gives you a thumbs up too.
