More Weeks on the Best-Sellers List!
Both "Petrith Pin" and "Brinkley Boyd" have enjoyed their time in the sun as they have bounded on to the Children's Best-Seller list for central North Carolina, as reported by the Country Book Shop in Southern Pines, NC. We've lost track of the number of weeks the books have been so honored, but "Petrith" was on for seven consecutive weeks in Oct-Nov., and for six of those weeks the book was #1 on the list. To our mind, that's further proof that both of these are great books for kids that should be carried by every indy book shop and available in every school.
"Read this book at CBS [Country Bookshop] & fell in love with it. Bought it for myself & for library reading group. Beautiful!" — Allis R.

"Brinkley" Named As a Great Holiday Gift by Local Newspaper
The adventures of Brinkley Boyd, the miniscule muroid featured in Annie Hallinan's newest book, "Brinkley Boyd of Weymouth" was named by The Pilot Newspaper as one of the best book gifts for the 2017 holiday season. In the Dec. 17th edition of the paper, a huge section featured "Great Book Gifts" and built on the theme, you can't spoil a kid by giving them too many books. Here at Turnberry Press, we agree!
Ms. Hallinan also was awarded a handsome accolade in the same edition of the paper with a "birdie" for building the Brinkley book into a fund raiser for the Weymouth Center (see inset, below). We humbly appreciate the honor!
