Yesterday the Roald Dahl Funny Prize was awarded at the Cambridge Theatre in London – home of Matilda! We were beside ourselves to have been shortlisted and were full of nervous excitement. Booktrust did a fantastic job of looking after us and putting on a great event. Here are the lovely winners – Simon Rickerty with Monkey Nut and Jim Smith with I Am Still Not a Loser:
Here are all the shortlistees on the stage:
And a wonderful close-up of Philip Ardagh and Michael Rosen taken by our son…
We were extra happy about Jim’s win because he is a fellow member of Team Egmont and we really enjoyed celebrating with him after the awards. What a fantastic day!
