Watch out, the Carnegie Shortlist is out!

The LibraryLadiez and our very keenest readers have begun meeting again on a regular basis to shadow this year’s Carnegie Award.

The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK’s oldest and most prestigious children’s book awards. Often described by authors and illustrators as ‘the one they want to win’ – they are the gold standard in children’s literature. The medals are awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book for children and young people in June.

Shortlist 2014

Click on the 2014 shortlist to visit the Shadowing Site and find out more.

In the meantime, we will be shadowing the award and reading as many of the shortlisted titles as we can and debating their merits. We are welcoming a large new cohort from Year 8 this year and one or two students from Year 7 who are determined to rise to the challenge!

Oh, and we get to eat cake in the library – but don’t tell anyone!!
