Carnegie & Greenaway Shortlists Announced

Shortlists have been announced for the UK's prestigious Carnegie and Greenaway awards for children's books. You can find the rosters at the following links: Carnegie Medal shortlist 2009, and Kate Greenaway Medal shortlist 2009.

The Carnegie honors writing and the Greenaway illustration, much like the Newbery and Caldecott awards here.

Last Friday the Guardian newspaper commented on the "boysy" aspect of the Carnegie shortlist.

Oh squee! I want to read BOG CHILD. Gonna go see right now if my library has it.

That second link (Greenaway) didn't work for me. Is it just my computer?


They have it. Yay! It's on hold.

I forgot all about that book; I really enjoyed A SWIFT PURE CRY. Thanks for that link.


Hey, Jules. Yay. Glad to hear the libe has the book. I like the word "boysy."

The link works okay here. Did you try it again?
