Bluey, the Emmy-winning Australian children’s television series about a little blue heeler puppy and her family, has just added another award to its swag – in a far more traditional medium.
For the first time, a children’s picture book has won the Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA) prestigious Book of the Year prize.
The Beach was the highest-selling Bluey title last year, shifting 129,516 copies in the two months after its release in November, and was second only to Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton’s The 117-Storey Treehouse, which sold 213,102 copies. Sales for The Beach now tally more than 200,000.
