Heart-burstingly proud

So Adelaide Writers' Week is in full swing and there's plenty of swanning about and graceful fanning happening under the plane trees at this wonderful festival.

And yesterday one Onion was fortunate enough to be there to see Shaun Tan collect the Children's Literature Award (woohoo!) AND the Premier's Award (woohoot!) for Tales from Outer Suburbia.

It is the first time the winner of the Children's Literature prize has won the Premier's Award.

Oh my, you should have heard how hard I clapped!

Congratulations to all the short-listed authors and the winners in other categories and THREE MILLION CHEERS to Shaun.

*does delighted Onion dance*
