Blue Peter Book Award Judges Announced

| No Comments


The Times columnist and best-selling author of How to be a Woman Caitlin Moran, will be one of the judges helping to select Blue Peter's favourite children's books of the year, as part of the 2013 Blue Peter Book Awards judging panel.

Joining her on the judging panel will be best-selling children's author of How to Train Your Dragon, Cressida Cowell; librarian Jake Hope; and Blue Peter Editor Tim Levell, who will be chairing the panel.

Caitlin Moran comments:

'As someone raised on books, and now a mother of two, I know there is no more amazing world to share with your kids than being able to climb into a book together and talk about it forever, like a cross between gossip, news and Christmas. Being able to judge this prize is a total honour. Plus, they said I could have a Blue Peter badge. There's a childhood dream fulfilled, right there.'

The shortlists will be announced on Blue Peter on Thursday 10 January (5.45pm CBBC). The winners will be announced and receive their trophies live on a special edition of Blue Peter to be broadcast on World Book Day, Thursday 7 March.
