CILIP Carnegie/Kate Greenaway medal shortlist released

On 1st April, the shortlist for the Prestigious CILIP (The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals) Carnegie and Kate Greenaway medals was announced.

The Carnegie medal is awarded for outstanding writing, and the Kate Greenaway medal for outstanding illustration. Nominated by children’s librarians, the judging process is uniquely shadowed by a schools and libraries around the country, with around 90,000 children participating.

A list of nominated titles follows. For detailed synopses of each nominated book, see the CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway website.

In 2010 the Carnegie medal was won by Neil Gaiman for The Graveyard Book, a reworking of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book, and the Kate Greenaway awarded to Freya Blackwood for her illustrations in Harry & Hopper by Margaret Wild. This year the standard is extremely high, but were it up to me I’d have Antony Browne’s Me and You for the Kate Greenaway medal, and Geraldine McCaughrean’s The Death Defying Pepper Roux for the Carnegie.
