Nim's Island socks!

I just spotted these very fun socks that someone's been knitting - and I love that she named them for Nim!

Movieguide Best Family Film Award

What a thrill to hear that Nim's Island has been nominated for the "Best Movie for Family Audiences" at the upcoming MOVIEGUIDE Awards on February 11th!

I see that Nemo won it a few years ago, so we're in good company – I've got fingers crossed, though whatever happens, it's always very nice to simply be recognized with a nomination.

Here are the first editions of Nim at Sea: Australia; USA, Poland, UK, and the Catalan language edition from Spain. I'll add the rest as the books arrive.

Here are all the Nim's Island covers to date - or at least to date as far as the ones I've received: there are still quite a few to come, and I'm not sure whether they haven't been published yet, or if the publishers just haven't sent out the author copies yet.

I was hoping I could insert the whole display here, but I don't seem to be able to.
