GLASWEGIAN authors Julia Donaldson and Catherine MacPhail have both been recognised in the 2010 Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children's Books.
The largest children's book awards in the country, the competition's winners are chosen by youngsters, with more than 16,000 kids voting this year.
Gruffalo author Donaldson won the Bookbug Category, 0-7 years, for her picture book, What The Ladybird Heard.
She said: "I am absolutely thrilled to have won.
"I'd like to offer a big thank you to Scottish Book Trust and the Royal Mail, to my brilliant illustrator Lydia Monks, to the other authors and illustrators, and especially to the children who took part, even the ones who voted for other books!"
Teenage fiction author Catherine Macphail won the Older Readers category, 12-16, for her book Grass, having won the same award in 2006 for her book Roxy's Baby.
She said: "To win this wonderful award once was exciting enough, but to win it twice, I still can't believe it.
"I am so proud so many young people voted for Grass, delighted doesn't come close to describing how I feel."
