UKLA Children’s Book Awards Longlist

UKLA Children’s Book Awards Longlist
Marianne Musgrove’s THE WORRY TREE and Anthony Browne’s ME AND YOU have both been longlisted for the UK Literacy Association (UKLA) Children’s Book Awards.

The prestigious longlist has traditionally been a major indicator of the best children books for inclusion in classrooms and schools.

Musgrove’s THE WORRY TREE is a sensitively written story that deals with fears and anxiety in young children, while Browne’s ME AND YOU is a stunningly illustrated picture book looking at both sides of the classic fairytale ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’.

Random House author Siobhan Dowd previously won the 2009 award for her teenage novel BOG CHILD.
