MONKEY King's Revenge, a Yin Yang adventure that takes a Chinese girl and her Borders school-friends from the River Tweed to the perils of mythological China, has been voted finalist for the children's section of The People's Book Prize.
The book, written by local retired Borders General Hospital doctor and children's writer, Oliver Eade, and illustrated by Ettrick Valley artist, Alma Dowle, is a sequel to Moon Rabbit which was a winner of the Writers' and Artists' 2007 Yearbook New Novel Competition.
Together, the books raise awareness of the Borders region amongst children in the rest of Britain and other parts of the world.
