blue peter book awards 2017: the shortlist!

Hooray! Today BBC's Blue Peter presented the shortlist for this year's Blue Peter Book Awards!

And here are the winning books! You can read about the winning writers and illustrators here on the BookTrust website, and because I'm an illustrator, special congrats from me to the people who drew the pictures! In the Best Story category: Adam Murphy wrote and drew the Lost Tales comics and his wife Lisa Murphy coloured them, and David Wyatt drew the pictures for Podkin One-Ear. In the Best Book with Facts category: Tom Clohosy Cole illustrated Destination Space, Spike Gerrell drew the pictures for Football School and Kerry Hyndman illustrated Survivors. All amazing!

And here are my fellow judges, I had so much fun with them on the day. You can read more about the judging day in this previous blog post. The BookTrust website says, The winners will be announced live on Blue Peter on 23 February 2017, with the winning authors and illustrators appearing on a special World Book Day episode of the show on Thursday 2 March 2017.' ...Can't wait!

If you live in the UK, for 29 more days you can watch Blue Peter again here on iPlayer. (The book award segment starts at the 16.30 mark.)
