Last Wednesday the TDA Carnegie Reading Group voted for their favourite illustrated book on the Greenaway shortlist and their favourite book on the Carnegie Shortlist.
Amazing results – and I actually agreed with them this year.
See our results video!
Imagine our surprise when I was able to reveal the official results on the next day – not only had our favourite book won – it had won both awards!.
I hadn’t this mainly because I had discounted the beautiful illustrations as I had read “A Monster Calls” on my Kindle App which only includes the cover illustration. (Another downside of e-books!). I think I’ll re-read “AMC” but borrow a real book to enjoy these in context. That’s if there are any left on the shelf to borrow!
