For the second year running, BookLife Publishing are proud to be headline sponsors for the Children’s Book Award! Last year we had a great time supporting this brilliant event, and we’re looking forward to meeting this year’s authors, reading this year’s entries, and hearing from the next cohort of young readers in 2019.

Last year’s winner was Katherine Rundell for her amazing book The Explorer. Katherine was thrilled to win, saying “Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me. I can’t say how grateful I am – this is so exciting, thank you!” Past winners have included Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson, and Anthony Horowitz – but who is your favourite this year?

Voting has now closed. Thank you to all those amazing people who have voted.
