OK… here it is… the moment you’ve all been waiting for! After much deliberation and discussion Puffin have picked seven new readers to join the CC DREAM TEAM… read on and find out who they are!

All winners have been informed by email, but in case you haven’t checked your mail lately, here we go… First of all, for the new Irish DREAM TEAM… congratulations to the following readers.
From Connaght, NADA NEWESSER; from Leinster, JANE FINNEGAN; from Munster, NORA FARRELL; and from Ulster, LEILA O NEILL. Well done to all who tried out for the Irish DREAM TEAM – picking just four was an almost impossible task.

To join the mainland UK DREAM TEAM, three more lucky readers have been chosen – congratulations to JULIANNE DOHERTY; EMILY MURRILLS; and ALICE BAXTER. Again, it was a very tough task, so a BIG thank you to all who entered – I have the best readers in the world, and if I had my way, I’d have picked you all!

Keep an eye on the DREAM TEAM link over the next few months… soon you will be able to see pics of the new Dream Teamers and find out more about them… it’s going to be VERY cool!

Last but not least, my book Cherry Crush has won the 2011 Redbridge Children’s Book Award… woo hoo! Thanks to all the fab children of Redbridge who voted for the book, and to the librarians and teachers too.

Well done again to the new Dream Teamers… do YOU have any ideas for how they should spread the word about my books?
