Enjoyment

Geraldine McCaughrean scooped a record-breaking third children's book award with Not the End of the World...

McCaughrean, who has written nearly 140 books, said it was good to prove she had not been a flash in the pan with her first Whitbread win in 1987. This book, for teenagers, was one of her most serious and had a "horrible topicality" in its story of Noah and vast floods.

But she was confident she would not prove the overall victor. "Two children's books have won in the last three years [The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon last year and The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman in 2001] and there won't be a third."
