The longlists for the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway awards have been announced today, and we’re incredibly proud that There’s a Bear on my Chair by Ross Collins has been longlisted for the Greenaway Medal!
The Greenaway Medal is, along with the Carnegie prize, the UK’s oldest and most prestigious children’s book award. Established in 1955, for distinguished illustration in a book for children, and named after the popular nineteenth century artist known for her beautiful children’s illustrations and designs, the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal is awarded annually for an outstanding book in terms of illustration for children and young people.
It’s an incredible honour to be longlisted – we are so thrilled for Ross’s incredible book.
There’s a Bear on my Chair is a joyously illustrated picture book – with a clever single rhyme echoing Dr Seuss, it’s perfect for sharing.
Here’s a look inside the book:
You can also buy beautiful, limited edition, signed and numbered giclee prints featuring artwork from There’s a Bear on My Chair exclusively from the Nosy Crow shop – here’s a look at the prints on offer:
The Greenaway shortlist will be revealed in March – and the eventual winner will be announced at an awards ceremony in June. Congratulations, Ross – and good luck!
