The shortlists for the 2018 FCBG Children’s Book Awards (formerly known as the Red House Children’s Book Award) have been announced, and we’re delighted to see that Edgar and the Sausage Inspector, written and illustrated by Jan Fearnley, has been recognised in the Books for Younger Children category!
The Children’s Book Awards are the only national book award voted for entirely by children, and this year 93,000 votes were cast to create the shortlists.
And children nationwide are now invited to vote for their favourite of the ten shortlisted books – the deadline for online voting is Friday 18th May.
Here’s a look inside Edgar and the Sausage Inspector:
With a FANTASTICALLY funny text, beautiful artwork, and a stylish Paris setting (and an array of delectable food), this is a future classic in the making – witty, charming and with wonderful child appeal.
The category winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in June – congratulations, Jan, and good luck!
