Liz Pichon, author and illustrator of The Brilliant World of Tom Gates (Scholastic) has won the 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize and has been shortlisted for the Red House Children’s Book Award.
Liz – congratulations on being shortlisted for the Red House Children’s Book Award! How do you feel about Tom’s growing success?
I couldn’t be more pleased! It’s amazing and I still get very excited when I see the book in a shop, library or anywhere really. The Red House Children’s Book Award is special because it’s voted for by children, so that means a lot too.
How did the idea of Tom Gates come about?
