Alien Rain shortlisted for the Tir na-n'Og award 2017
We are thrilled that Alien Rain by Ruth Morgan has been shortlisted for the Tir na-n'Og Award, a prize for the best children's book of the year set in Wales.
As the judges say, Alien Rain is 'A science fiction novel set on Mars in the year 3016. Earth has been abandoned and the novel’s characters live in a scaled-down replica of Cardiff within a dome.' It's a hugely exciting adventure with an unforgetable heroine and everyone at Firefly is delighted to see Ruth acknowledged on the award shortlist. Helen Jones, the Welsh Books Council's Head of Children's Books and Reading Promotion, noted, "The variety of books on this year's shortlist is really encouraging. Our aim is to foster a love of reading, from the youngest toddler to young adults."
Congratulations to Ruth and all the shortlisted authors in Welsh and English. See the full list here:
