The National Indie Excellence Book Awards has announced Turbin the 2012 Winner in the Category of Children’s Book and Audio Set, which marks the twelfth award Turbin has received for her critically-acclaimed book, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy.
“The National Indie Excellence Book Awards selects, year after the year, the finest indie books out there,” Turbin said, “So when I heard the news, I was truly honored. It’s so rewarding to see so many people, parents and critics alike, open up their hearts to Danny the Dragon.”
The award comes after a series of exciting announcements about Danny the Dragon from Turbin’s publisher, Imagination Publishing Group (IPG).

Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, the critically-acclaimed first book in Turbin’s children’s book series, tells the story of Danny the Dragon and the friendship he develops with Jimmy and his family after their most unusual meeting at the beach. Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy has been praised for its positive, pro-family themes by critics and bloggers, and along with its subsequently-released DVD with sign interpretation and Danny the Dragon Dreams CD, has won numerous prestigious awards, including the highly-esteemed Media of the Year Award by Creative Child Magazine and Mom’s Choice Award.
