THE 11TH YEAR OF CHRISTOPHER ARTHUR MCDANIELS has cleared the preliminary hurdle, earned a “Seal of Approval” and is now in the final running for a major award in this year’s Literary Classics International Book Awards. This is my second book that has impressed the judges of this annual competition. Two years ago ABOUT A FARM won Best New Chapter Book 2013. My good luck charm is my U.K. connection, Lynda Mangoro, who illustrated both books. Below is the judge’s review of Christopher. Now it’s on to the main event, but it will be several months before the final winners are announced.
