CILIP Carnegie Winner Here lies Arthur by Philip Reeve
CILIP Kate Greenaway Winner Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears by Emily Gravett
The Award Ceremony at the British Library on Thursday 26 June was compared by Bob (I didn't catch his last name) who is head of CILIP. His style is very much jacket off, sleeves rolled but despite a jokey manner he made a worth while plea for local authorities to maintain their expert children's librarians. Michael Portillo presented the prizes and showed convincing interest throughout the ceremony.
