Award Winning Children’s Books

Lovereading4kids’ editorial expert and Guardian children’s books editor Julia Eccleshare was chair of this year’s judging panel for the Guardian Children’s Fiction award and said of the winner, Frank Cottrell Boyce’s The Unforgotten Coat, the book’s ‘great immediacy and humour really set it apart. Frank writes with such credibility and warmth that his readers will be left wiser when they have finished the story.’ Visit the Book Awards Section of the website to find out more.

Just announced the Roald Dahl Funny Prize winners

As the giggles die down the cheers start up for two fabulously funny books. The 6 and under award went to the hilarious My Big Shouting Day by Rebecca Patterson. It’s a picture book that every parent will relate to. And the 7 to 14 award went to the wonderfully original, completely mad Dark Lord : The Teenage Years by Jamie Thomson.

Find out more about the winners and shortlisted titles in our special section.

Loved the Hunger Games time to discover Matched…

Fans of The Hunger Games may already have found Ally Condie’s Matched trilogy for 14+ readers but if you haven’t you’re in for a treat! With film rights having been snapped up, these wonderfully rich and dark novels form a highly addictive, multi-layered dystopian trilogy. The first, Matched, has a page-turning plot and a devastating romance leaving you desperate to learn the fate of the star-crossed lovers and the second Crossed is an even more edge-of-your-seat adventure exploring the basic freedom to choose and what happens when it’s taken from you.

Finally Reached …poetic, page-turning and gripping is published 30 November so there’s plenty of time for teenagers new to Ally Condie to read the first two. We will have an extract as soon as the publisher lifts the embargo on it!!!

Catching our eagle eye this month is the brilliant:

And finally – Answers to all those tricky questions…

Why is the sea salty? How far away is space? What is global warming? Why do children have a knack of asking great questions which we as parents often can’t answer? Well here is a book that can help, as these and many other fascinating questions are answered by experts including Sir David Attenborough, Bear Grylls, and Jessica Ennis. Part of the proceeds from the sale of each book will be donated to the NSPCC, helping to fund its projects and services to help vulnerable children and young people across the UK and Channel Islands, including ChildLine. Perfect. Visit the website to find out more.

P.S. We are looking for children to review for us and for their reviews to feature on Lovereading4kids. This month we are giving readers the chance to review one of two sensational debuts? Into That Forest (perfect for 10+ year olds) by Louis Nowra; described by Julia Eccleshare, our editorial expert, as ‘A touching and inspiring story is told with striking originality’ and Sorrowline (perfect for 9-12 year olds) by Niel Bushnell described, by the Editor who discovered it, as ‘full of originality… This book will blow your mind.
