Tale of death and depression wins children's award-Arts & Entertainment-Books-Children-TimesOnline

Carnegie & Greenaway winners (apologies for late posting)


CARNEGIE MEDAL
Just In Case by Meg Rosoff

It's no secret that I found Meg Rosoff's first novel deeply flawed and disagreeable in its use of armed invasion and violence as a backdrop. Her second novel, which has now won the Carnegie Medal, is clever but cold. Clearly I am in a minority (possibly of one) in finding that Rosoff's voice does not speak to me.


GREENAWAY MEDAL
The Adventures Of The Dish and the Spoon by Mini Grey

I'm a huge fan of Grey's work, and delighted by this choice.
