A couple of years ago, in my freelance capacity I worked with an author called James Hopson on Captain Satsuma Has Landed, a zany children’s book that also provides a fun introduction to environmental and healthy eating issues.
I’m pleased to say that it was not only published, but has now won an award. Congratulations, James, and hopefully it will be the first of many!
James’ own announcement:
Fantastic News to Share. We’ve WON!! ‘Captain Satsuma has Landed’ storybook has WON a BEST in the UK Award. Self-Published last year the book introduces children to food in fun ways. We would like to say a Huge thank you to World Cookbook Fair – Gourmand International – Gourmand Awards for recognising our efforts in encourage children to make healthy choices in their everyday lives.
