Archiving: CILIP Carnegie Medal 2013

CILIP Carnegie Medal nominations announcements are nearly upon on and we thought we'd make a little space on our CKG page because.....yes, we are back, just in time for #CKG17!

So, our 2013 shadowing is being archived.....


Carnegie Medal 2013

Congratulations to Sally Gardner for Maggot Moon winning the CILIP Carnegie medal 2013. Here is M's review of Maggot Moon and here is a post exploring it's cover design.

The CILIP Carnegie longlist is chosen by librarians and the criteria is for the books to make an outstanding contribution to children's literature.

We shadowed the Carnegie 2013 longlist since November 2012. There were 68 titles on the longlist. There were 8 titles on the shortlist (these were our personal shortlist choices - you'll notice we were pretty close to the real one). This is how we've judged the shortlist.

1. Maggot Moon - Sally Gardner
2. The Weight of Water - Sarah Crossan
