Chloe, Elizabeth, Niamh, Sophie, Fran, Helena and Mia from Year 9 have begun avidly reading the books shortlisted for this year’s Carnegie Children’s Book Awards. They are joined by Leah from Year 10 who followed the awards last year and enjoyed it so much that she wanted to do it again!
The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK’s oldest and most prestigious book awards for children’s authors and illustrators. You can view the girls’ comments on the Carnegie website, www.ckg.org.uk
The winners will be announced on Monday 23 June 2014.
