Two Nosy Crow books longlisted for the 2021 UKLA Book Awards!

We’re thrilled to announce that two Nosy Crow books have been longlisted for the 2021 UKLA Book Awards! Now in their 13th year, the awards aim to highlight children’s books that reflect all identities and promote diversity – and are the only awards judged entirely by teachers.

The Girl Who Stole an Elephant, by Nizrana Farook, and Talking to the Moon, by S.E. Durrant, have both been longlisted in the 7-10+ category.

A brilliant adventure set in a fictional Sri Lanka, The Girl Who Stole an Elephant will transport you to a world of action, deception, bravery and rebellion.

Buy the book.

A moving story of friendship, family secrets, and a grandmother with dementia, Talking to the Moon will start important conversations about family history, mental health and kindness.

Buy the book.

You can find out more about the UKLA Book Awards, and read the full longlist, here. The overall winners will be announced next year at the 2021 UKLA International Conference.

Congratulations Nizrana and Sue!
