Author of The Cat Mummy, Winner: 2002-2003 Nottingham Big 3 Book Award, age group 10-11
Special Message from Jacqueline Wilson
"I'm thrilled to bits that The Cat Mummy has won this award. I'm on holiday in Madeira so I can't be with you, unfortunately.
" I find many children grieve terribly when their pet dies, and from the letters I've had about the Cat Mummy, sometimes this book can be a bit of a help, a bit of a comfort.
"Also, it looks such a lovely book because of Nick Sharratt's jacket and illustrations. They make it accessible to all."
Jacqueline Wilson recommends her book Lola Rose, out now, and Midnight
