The nomination lists for the 2017 CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Awards have been published today, and we’re absolutely thrilled that five Nosy Crow books have been recognised for the prizes!
The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK’s oldest children’s book awards, and are judged solely by librarians. The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded for an outstanding book written in English for children and young people, and the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal is awarded for an outstanding book in terms of illustration for children and young people.
The Doughnut of Doom, written and illustrated by Elys Dolan, and Refuge, written by Anne Booth and illustrated by Sam Usher, have both been nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal.
