Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2018 Shortlist


Some very exciting news:  I Really Want The Cake, my book with Lucia Gaggiotti, has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2018, in the Illustrated Books category.

I’m honoured that our book has been nominated.  The award champions new and emerging talent; the prize is bookseller-voted and the shortlist is chosen from thousands of new titles that pass through Waterstones booksellers’ hands.  My local branch has been very supportive of my books, so a huge thanks to them.

The awards ceremony is being held at Waterstones Piccadilly on 22 March.  You can read more about it and see the full shortlist here.  You can also watch a video about the full shortlist here, and a very cute video about the books in the Illustrated category here!  

Congratulations to all the other nominees!
