Fearsome Beastie Shortlisted for the Rotherham Book Award

It has just been announced that the Fearsome Beastie has been shortlisted for the Rotherham Children’s Book Awards with only two others in the picture book catagory!

‘It is the 12th year for the Rotherham Children’s Book Awards. It began in 2000 as a Carnegie Shadowing Project. Since then the award has become bigger and better, with more children and schools participating and sharing their love of reading every year. In 2011 over 40 schools attended the awards ceremony, from children’s centres to comprehensives, along with many others working with the books within schools.’

The schools then work with the shortlisted books and then at the Award Giving Ceremony the children can display their work related to the books.

This is a fantastic award that helps promote reading and interaction with books.

We wish Giles all the best and we will be keeping our fingers crossed until the winner is announced in June!
