    Two diverse countries and cultures are linked with warmth and charm in this two-in-one picture book.

Mirror by Jeannie Baker has won the 2013 COOL Award for Picture Storybooks.

The COOL (Canberra’s Own Outstanding List) Awards are the annual children’s choice book awards made by young readers in the ACT. Children choose from amongst the Australian books they have enjoyed reading during the year.

"I'm thrilled to be receiving this award. I feel the awards voted by children are the best awards a children’s author can be given.

At this time in our history, when it seems to me Australians are less generous in sharing this great country with others who are less fortunate, I am especially pleased that it is Mirror the children have chosen: a wordless book that talks about how in the ways that really matter, (even when we may live at opposite ends of the world and there may be huge differences between us in our lifestyle, culture and environment) people are mostly very much the same."
