Highlights for A&U were presentations on Boomerang and Bat, KidglovzRockhoppingThe Cut Out and Every Breath. But without question the most anticipated moment of the conference was the announcement of the 2016 CBCA shortlist. Congratulations go to Eric Bogle and Bruce Whatley for their work on And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda, shortlisted in the Picture Book of the Year category; to Libby Gleeson and Freya Blackwood for The Cleo Stories: A Friend and a Pet; and to J.C.
