“Jonathan Auxier, author of The Night Gardener, is taking home the 2015 TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award, the richest prize in the country for children’s literature at $30,000. He also won the $5,000 Monica Hughes Award for Science Fiction and Fantasy at Wednesday night’s gala for the same book.
Written for middle-grade students, Auxier’s The Night Gardener is a chilling novel about a pair of Irish orphans named Molly and Kip who become servants in a haunted mansion. Earlier this year, Auxier spoke to the CBC’s Mary Ito on Fresh Air.”
