Congratulations to Philippa Dowding for her inclusion in the 2013 White Raven catalogue for The Gargoyle at the Gates.

In the third book in the Lost Gargoyle trilogy, Christopher is astonished to discover that gargoyles Ambergine and Gargoth are living in the park next door and that Katherine, a girl from his class, knows the gargoyles, as well. When the Collector steals Ambergine, it's up to Christopher and Katherine to get her back, as long as something else doesn't catch them along the way.

The White Ravens is an annual catalogue featuring 250 new and notable titles of children's and young adult literature from over 40 countries. The language specialists of the International Youth Library (IYL) in Munich, Germany select the books in the course of the previous year from the incoming donations to acclaim the most noteworthy and remarkable ones. Eleven Canadian-published titles, seven in English and four in French, were honoured this year. In addition, a couple of Canadian authors and illustrators, who published with non-Canadian publishing houses, were also honoured.
