2020 ABIA Book Award goes to Welcome To Your Period!

Welcome To Your Period (Hardie Grant) has been awarded with the 2020 ABIA Australian Book Award (Book of the Year for Older Children).

A frank, funny, age-appropriate guide for pre-teens about getting your period, from Dr Melissa Kang and Yumi Stynes. Getting your period for the first time can be mortifying, weird and messy – and asking questions about it can feel even worse. But it doesn’t have to be like that!

Rights have been sold to 12 territories and sales are up to 30.000 copies only in Australia! Hardie Grant will be launching the next project by the same authors, Welcome To Consent, next June and Liana Editorial has already acquired rights for Spain.

Spanish/Latin America and Portuguese rights are available!
