BookBrunch Children's Column

extract from BookBrunch's end-of-year children's column

Humour in children's books is finally getting the appreciation it deserves: well done the Roald Dahl prize, and Louise Rennison as Queen of Teen. Series still build: cf Malorie Blackman (with a bonus fourth book), Paolini, Higson, Muchamore ... But it has been a good year for the quirky, one-off title: consider the prizes conferred on Patrick Ness, and the adventurous publishing of such critically acclaimed oddities as Jacques Courvillon's Chicken Dance, Jack Gantos's The Love Curse of the Rumbaughs, and Ingrid Law's Savvy.
