BRAW new book

14th October 2005 at 01:00
Catscape, the winner of the Kelpie Prize for new Scottish writing for children, as announced at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, was published this week by Floris Books.

The novel, by Mike Nicholson of Comely Bank, Edinburgh, where the "sharply and wittily observed" story is set, is about a 12-year-old boy who gets a digital watch with 20 funky functions that lead to unlikely friendships and cat surveillance.

Floris Books launched the novel yesterday in association with Braw (Books, Reading and Writing), the new network for Scottish children's books based at the Scottish Book Trust in Edinburgh.
