As you may have heard, Neil Flambé and the Tokyo Treasure has been nominated for the John Spray Mystery Award. This is one of the many great awards that TD Bank supports through the Canadian Children's Book Centre - although John Spray himself backs this one!

Well, it's pretty amazing to be nominated and the group of fellow nominees is top notch. (Winner is announced in October at the big TD awards night.)

The nicest thing for me was the lovely description of the book from the judges....

"Filled to the brim with humour and wit, Neil Flambé and the Tokyo Treasure is a joy to read… Characters and location make reading the book an adventure, and the dramatic cooking battles keep the pace lively as the story develops … Sylvester's prose is delicious and Flambé is a character who will never spoil."
