Viviane Schwarz was at the CILIP Carnegie Greenaway award ceremony last week with her shortlisted book, There are no cats in this book. As she said, she was in great company, and you've no doubt already heard that Patrick Ness (writer) and Jim Kay (illustrator) uniquely scooped both awards for their book A Monster Calls, based on an idea by the late Siobhan Dowd. However, Viv did extremely well to get on the shortlist as the competition is so fierce, so she deserves to be hugely congratulated! Luckily for us, she gave me the artwork for this book earlier in the year and there are still a few wonderful pieces remaining.
