‘Beverlee Beaz the Brown Burmese’ Wins Coveted Royal Dragonfly Book Award
CHANDLER, AZ (November, 2015) – The judges of the 2015 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards contest, which recognizes excellence in all genres of literature have spoken, and Beverlee Beaz the Brown Burmese by Regan W. H. Macaulay, illustrated by Alex Zgud, won an Honourable Mention in the Children's Picture Books, 5 & Younger category.
“Winning any place in the Royal Dragonfly Contest is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the Dragonfly Book Awards, a minimum score is required before a First or Second Place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the sole entry in a category,” explains Linda F. Radke, president of Five Star Publications, the sponsor of the Dragonfly Book Awards. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”
Beverlee Beaz the Brown Burmese is a picture storybook about a Burmese cat with a wild imagination. It retails for $14.95 (USD online, CA price in the bookstore) and can be purchased at Ella Minnow Children's Bookstore, and Amazon.
