Las Vegas, Saturday 15 October – at the 6th International Literary Classics Annual Book Awards in Las Vegas, book 4 from Sarah Hill’s award winning Whimsy Wood Series “Posie Pixie and the Fireworks Party” was declared the winner in the Chapter Book category, winning against stiff competition from around the world. Immediately after Hill said she was ecstatic at the win. "I came here hoping but was astounded when my name was announced. It’s been the icing on the cake for an altogether amazing trip."


Sarah is a Wiltshire-based children's author and creator of The Whimsy Wood Series. The first 9 books in the Whimsy Wood Series have been published to acclaim. Book ten is currently being edited. Books 1 through 5 have all been awarded the Reader’s Favorite Best In Class 5 Star Awards with books 6 and 7 jointly winning 1st place in The Royal Dragonfly Book Competition earlier in the year. Books 6 and 7 have also been awarded the Story Monster “Books Worth Devouring” medals.

Sarah Hill published her first book “Posie Pixie and the Copper Kettle” in 2013 through Abela Publishing. 10% of Hill’s royalty is donated to The Wildlife Trusts.

The books in Sarah Hill's series are based in a woodland setting called Whimsy Wood. The series is divided into five sets, each containing seven books, making a total of thirty-five books in the series. Each book is written for a specific month in the year, so the flora and fauna change accordingly as you read through the series. Finally, there is a proverb hidden within each story for young readers to find, giving the story a real meaning. The majority of characters within the series are woodland creatures, with the occasional pixie or fairy and a dollop of humour thrown in!
