The winners of the 2012 Children’s Book Council Book of the Year Award have been announced.
Congratulations to Scot Gardiner, Kate Constable, Nick Bland & Freya Blackwood and Bob Graham! Of course, I need to eat my words as I said that Gardiner’s book wouldn’t win and, in the chaos of moving house, I haven’t even read Crow country yet (they would choose the one chapter book that I didn’t read…).
Thank you to the CBCA and particularly the judges of the award for choosing such an interesting and varied range of books for me to enjoy.
As always, the winner is reading.
