We’re absolutely delighted to announce that Wigglesbottom Primary: Break-Time Bunnies, written by bestselling Pamela Butchart and illustrated by Becka Moor, has been longlisted for the 2021 Alligator’s Mouth Award!
Launched in 2018, the book prize celebrates the very best in highly illustrated children’s fiction for 6-8 year-olds and is run by the Richmond-based Alligator’s Mouth bookshop and The Bright Agency. The award is also supported by Gardeners, who will continue as an official partner.
This year’s judging panel includes acclaimed children’s author Smriti Halls; last year’s winner, Adam Stower; award-winning book blogger and primary school librarian Jo Clarke; primary school headteacher and book blogger Simon Smith; co-owners of The Alligator’s Mouth bookshop, Margaret Wallace-Jones and Tony West; and Director of The Bright Agency, Arabella Stein.
It’s an honour to have the Wigglesbottom Primary series recognised by the award!
Life at Wigglesbottom Primary is often lived on the edge. An unexpected visitor, a bewitched violin and an invasion of bunnies! What can it all mean?
With three laugh-out-loud stories in each book, and fun two-colour artwork throughout, Wigglesbottom Primary is perfect for encouraging independent reading!
Take a look inside the book:
