CBCA Book of the Year Winners 2010

This year I was fortunate enough to attend the CBCA's 2010 Awards at Manor Lakes P-12 Specialist College in Wyndham Vale.  The school was abuzz with CBCA fever and the Manor Lakes hall had been marvellously decorated by the students to represent this year's CBCA theme of 'Across the Story Bridge'. Here is the full list of all the winning and honoured books.
