Gervais triumphs over Pratchett in British Book Awards - Independent Online Edition > News

Ricky Gervais wins British Book Award:

Peter Kay and Ricky Gervais are accustomed to receiving acclaim at awards ceremonies. But it was for their literary efforts, not their wit, that they were named winners last night at the Galaxy British Book Awards, the UK's biggest celebration of publishing. Gervais beat established writers including Geraldine McCaughrean and Terry Pratchett to take the children's book of the year honour with Flanimals of the Deep, the third in the series he has produced with the illustrator Rob Steen. Gervais accepted his award live on stage in Ipswich. "That's fantastic ... it's the first one for my literary outputs," he said, admitting his work had been described as "books about bollocks with eyes drawn on them".
