LONDON, July 29th 2016
The debut children’s book from dad-author Mark Lemon, Otis Lemon & The Spectacular Submarine, has just been awarded the Platinum Junior Design Award 2016 in the Children’s book of the year (with words) (within last 12 months) category. The awards, organised by Junior Magazine, recognise the finest modern toys and books.
The Platinum Award is the highest accolade possible and is reserved for those products that go above and beyond the high judging standards and showcase immaculate design.
Disillusioned with the lack of diversity in children’s books, Mark (with two mixed-race children of his own) decided to create a series of exciting story books with non-white characters. With thrilling tales and beautiful adventures, the Otis & Thea Lemon series is fast becoming a firm favourite in family households.
Mark has currently sold over 500 books through his own website and his books are now available in Waterstone’s, Foyles, Amazon and independent bookstores throughout his home town of Bristol. He provides books to local children’s hospital libraries and has worked closely with a number of primary schools having created schemes of work to go with every book.
