Barrington Stoke books nominated for the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals

As one of the most influential and celebrated prizes for children’s books in the UK, with every nomination coming not from a publisher submission but from a librarian’s nomination, it means so much to have so many of our titles listed.

Our warmest congratulations to:


Alpha written by Bessora, illustrated by Barroux and translated by Sarah Ardizzone, nominated for both the Carnegie Medal and the Kate Greenaway Medal


Thicker than Water by Anne Cassidy, nominated for the Carnegie Medal


Unboxed by Non Pratt, nominated for the Carnegie Medal


Clare and Her Captain by Michael Morpurgo, illustrated by Catherine Rayner, nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal

And our congratulations too, to all the brilliant authors and illustrators listed!
