The votes have been counted and the winners have now been declared of the Lancashire School Library Service Fantastic Book Awards 2017.
The Fantastic Book Awards aim to support reading for pleasure by introducing newly published fiction titles to upper Key Stage 2 pupils. The awards involve thousands of children aged 9-11 from primary schools across Lancashire who read and vote for the books they consider the best. The schools then hold Oscar style celebrations to announce the winners.
The winning authors have received uniquely engraved fountain pens and special letters of congratulation, written by the schools that voted them winners!
So here they are – Lancashire children’s choice of winners – the top reads for 9-11 year olds!
Well done to the winning authors, to all the library and school staff involved in putting together and running the awards and to the pupils that took part and chose such brilliant winners!
