Storylines selected 33 outstanding New Zealand children's and teen's books published in 2016 to make up the Notable Book list.
Māui — Sun Catcher, which Oratia published in November 2016, was one of 12 titles in the list of Picture Book Notables 2017.
"The awards, given since 2000, are a respected yardstick for the best children's book published in New Zealand each year," said Dr Libby Limbrick, Storylines Trust Chair.
