Chris Haughton Wins Children’s Book of the Year, Junior at Irish Book Awards!

Congratulations to Chris Haughton, who last night won Children’s Book of the Year, Junior at the Specsavers Irish Book Awards with his picture book Shh! We Have a Plan!

“Four friends are out for a walk. Suddenly, they spot it – a beautiful bird perched high in a tree! They simply must have it and – shh! – they have a plan. So they tip-toe, nets poised. But, at the turn of the page, we find a ridiculous bunch of very tangled characters and a blissfully oblivious bird, flying away.”
