The nomination lists 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 nominated 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 nominated – 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:
The Greenaway longlist will be announced in February next year, followed by a shortlist in March – and the eventual winner will be announced at an awards ceremony in June. Congratulations, Ross – and good luck!
