Re the Carnegie selection-a good list on the whole with an obvious bias this year towards a child rather than young adult readership. How, though, could they have left out Geraldine McCaughrean's 'Not the End of the World', a powerful and moving indictment of intolerance and the dangers of religious certainty? Surely this should have been preferred to the Philip Pullman, which, while being quite charming, is scarcely an example of the author working at his full stretch.
I would like to see 'Al Capone'win, though i suspect they will go for the Sharon Creech.
