“Plasticus maritimus” receives Honourable Mention in Bologna

The book Plasticus maritimus, an invasive species received an Honourable Mention from the jury at the BolognaRagazzi Awards, in Non-Fiction.

In the words of the jury, it’s a “uniquely formatted and physically satisfying field guide to saving our planet through recognising the harm of plastics and what we can do in the way of activism and creativity. It uses a variety of original artwork, including photographs, colour pencil sketches and imaginative graphics.”

The BolognaRagazzi Awards, organised by the Bologna Childrens Books Fair, are one of the most important awards in the field of children’s and young adult publishing.

Let’s celebrate! (But avoid the balloons or straws, ok?)
