Local Liverpool entrepreneur and author, Natalie Billing Reeves has been crowned the Mum’s Choice winner, after scooping two top prizes at this years awards.
The mum of two young children became a multiple award winner at the prestigious UK Mums TV Mums Choice Awards 2020.
The awards attracted a record number of entries this year making Toxteth-born Natalie Billing Reeves’ double win all the more impressive.
Voted for by readers, Natalie’s books written under her Lollipop Lodge stable won Gold for The Monstrous Me Collection and Silver for Ben and the Bug…already acclaimed in national circles for helping parents and children cope with the pandemic.
The latter also now sits in the Museum of Liverpool as testament to its importance for the community. Ben and the Bug children’s book written by Natalie, was created to help families and teachers explain the Coronavirus to younger children.
Natalie says: “I had a book about Coronavirus in my head; seeing the pandemic through the bug’s eyes to help break down fear and anxiety, but also being clear on basic hygiene. I released Ben and the Bug a couple of weeks later and it went to number one in three categories. I was gobsmacked.”
