’s Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Frozen Hearts
, the first book in the Wilma Tenderfoot series, has been shortlisted for the Heart of Hawick Children’s Book Award
. The award celebrates the best in children’s fiction for 10 to 12 year olds.
The book tells the story of Wilma Tenderfoot, who dreams of one day becoming assistant to the world-famous and very serious detective Theodore P. Goodman. But the last thing Mr Goodman wants is a small and slightly accident-prone sidekick – especially one with an over-friendly beagle called Pickle who keeps eating all the clues. Still, be warned - Wilma Tenderfoot may be small, but she is very determined!
Now in its fourth year running, the Heart of Hawick Award has this year involved 10 schools and 800 children, who read, review, and vote for their favourite books. The winner will be announced at the award ceremony on 26th May 2011.
