The CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Children's Book Awards - Press Desk

History Is Made


In an historic announcement which marked a unique moment in the 75 year history of the UK's oldest and most prestigious children's book award, the 2012 CILIP Carnegie Medal was earlier this week awarded to Patrick Ness for his novel, "A Monster Calls" (Walker Books).

Not only was this the second consecutive Carnegie Medal for Patrick Ness (a feat only achieved once before, in 1979 & 1980 by Peter Dickinson); but for the first time ever, the same book has also won the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal - sister award to the Carnegie Medal - with Jim Kay taking the prize for his haunting illustrations for "A Monster Calls".
