The Diamond of Drury Lane is published by Egmont Press (�6.99). The Ottakar�s Children�s Book Prize was set up to reward exciting new or not yet established authors of children�s books. The award is unique in prizes for children�s books not only because it rewards relatively unknown authors but also because it is both booksellers and children together who select the shortlist and ultimate winner.
