Blue Peter Book Awards Shortlist

The Blue Peter Book Awards 2012 shortlist:

Discover the Extreme World
by Camilla de la Bedoyere, Clive Gifford, John Farndon, Steve Parker, Stewart Ross and Philip Steele (Miles Kelly)
The Official Countdown to the London 2012 Games by Simon Hart (Carlton Books)

A Year without Autumn by Liz Kessler (Orion Children's Books)

This year's judges who selected the shortlist are the bestselling children's author of the series My Secret Unicorn and Stardust, Linda Chapman; librarian, Rebecca Gediking; and Blue Peter Editor, Tim Levell. They were looking for the best two fiction and non-fiction titles that would appeal to boys and girls, aged between 6 and 12.

The shortlisted books will now be judged by more than 200 young Blue Peter viewers drawn from 10 schools across the UK to decide the winner. This year for the first time, the winner will be announced and awarded a Blue Peter trophy on a special edition of Blue Peter dedicated to children's books on Thursday 1 March 2012, to coincide with World Book Day.
