Blue Peter Book Awards 2013 Shortlists

The shortlist for this year's Blue Peter Book Award was announced today on Blue Peter, and how very good to see Michael Rosen's biography of Roald Dahl, included. Rosen's non-fiction work for children, which includes a superb book about Shakespeare, is somewhat undervalued I always feel.

You might need to look for this one on abebooks...
The six shortlisted books now go to a children's vote to decide the overall winners.

The Blue Peter Book Awards 2013 shortlist is:

Best Story

  • The Boy who Swam With Piranhas by David Almond, illustrated by Oliver Jeffers (Walker Books)
  • Hero on a Bicycle by Shirley Hughes (Walker Books)
  • Tom Gates - Genius Ideas (Mostly) by Liz Pichon (Scholastic)

Best Book with Facts

  • Horrible Science: House of Horrors by Nick Arnold & Tony De Saulles (Scholastic)
  • Walter Tull's Scrapbook by Michaela Morgan (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)
  • Fantastic Mr Dahl by Michael Rosen, illustrated by Quentin Blake (Puffin)

The winners will be announced and awarded a Blue Peter trophy on a special edition of Blue Peter dedicated to children's books on Thursday 7 March 2013, to coincide with World Book Day.
