Nominations for the 2014 CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals have been announced today, and very excitingly, two Nosy Crow titles have been recognised!
Both Weasels, by Elys Dolan, and Open Very Carefully, by Nicola O’Byrne and Nick Bromley, are amongst the titles nominated for the Greenaway Medal – one of the most prestigious awards in children’s literature, and given annually for an outstanding illustrated book for children and young people.
It’s the second recent nomination for Weasels, which is also on the shortlist for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. Here’s a look inside the book:

Congratulations to Elys, Nicola and Nick – and good luck!
