Book award season is in full swing and last week saw the announcement of the 2016 Fantastic Book Awards.
The Awards, which are coordinated by Lancashire Schools Library Service, are in their eleventh year and are hugely popular, with thousands of children from schools across Lancashire reading, debating and voting for their favourite books.
The awards support reading for pleasure by introducing upper Key Stage 2 children to newly-published (and rather brilliant) fiction.
And the winners are:
Diamonds and Daggers – Elen Caldecott
The 13-Storey Treehouse – Andy Griffiths
The Imaginary – AF Harrold
Squirrel Boy vs the Bogeyman – Dave Lowe
Billiy’s Blitz – Barbara Mitchelhill
Congratulations to all the winning authors and well done to all who organised and took part in the awards!
