By March 24, 2019 Literary Awards, News

Last month we brought you the shortlist for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2019, and what a worthy list it was. The Waterstones Children’s Book Prize is an annual award given to a work of children’s literature published in the previous year. The award was first given back in 2005, and the purpose of the award is to “uncover hidden talent in children’s writing”, and is therefore only open to authors who have published no more than three books.

This week, the winners were announced and the overall winner is a gripping tale about a refugee boy and the judges are calling it a future classic.
