Four Nosy Crow books longlisted for the 2020 UKLA Book Awards!

We’re delighted to announce that four Nosy Crow books have been longlisted for the 2020 UKLA Book Awards! Now in their 12th year, the UKLA Book Awards are the only awards judged entirely by teachers.

What Does An Anteater Eat?, by Ross Collins, The Suitcase, by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros, and The Rabbit, the Dark, and the Biscuit Tin, by Nicola O’Byrne, have all been longlisted in the 3-6 category. The Middler, by Kirsty Applebaum has been longlisted in the 7-11 category.

A delightfully silly picture book from award-winning author Ross Collins, What Does An Anteater Eat? combines comic misunderstanding with wonderful illustrations. Here’s a look inside:
