Two Nosy Crow books shortlisted for Sheffield Children’s Book Awards!

The shortlists for the 2017 Sheffield Children’s Book Awards have been revealed, and we’re absolutely delighted that two Nosy Crow books have been recognised!

123: A Walk in the Countryside, illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw, has been shortlisted for the Sheffield Baby Book Award. The second in a series of concept books created for the National Trust, this board book takes very young readers on an autumnal walk through the countryside. With beautiful illustrations from Ros Beardshaw, this elegant little book is a great way of bringing children closer to nature.

And The Many Worlds of Albie Bright, by Christopher Edge, has been shortlisted in the Short Novels category of the Children’s Book Awards!

Frank Cottrell Boyce called The Many Worlds of Albie Bright “A book with a big brain, big laughs and a big, big heart.” The Times, naming the book a Children’s Book of the Week, wrote: “Christopher Edge has written a clever story infused with science that wears its intelligence humorously, introduces complex ideas with the lightest of touches … Give the man his own element on the periodic table of children’s authors.”

Here’s a look inside the book:

Last year, over 4,000 local children and families took part in the Book Award and Baby Book Award project, making it one of the largest Local Authority award schemes in the country.  The winners of the awards will be announced at an award ceremony in November. Congratulations, Ros and Chris – and good luck!
