    Anna Walker Congratulations!!!

    Sadami Konchi Thank u very much, Anna Walker, for encouraging and supporting for ages. You're so kind. I'll keep up!
Our publishing team and I made it. Big names in our industry know it's not easy to get in the CBCA list. So, they celebrate it together. Other people have said that my notable by a second picture book is quite fast. But it hardly happens. Imagine many good picture books across Australia compete for this annual entitlement. I really thank for your support for ages. I've come to this level step by step. I'll just keep up. 
Friends, Happy Painting!
