Featured on a longlist of just 23, Pippa Goodhart and Ehsan Abdollahi’s gorgeous picture book was selected from among over 360 entries. The shortlist will be announced in March 2018.
These prestigious annual awards by the UK Literary Association honour ‘high quality illustration’ and ‘writing which offers language rich in layered meanings, imaginative expression and exciting vocabulary’. They’re the only awards whose judges are active teachers, and this year books in translation featured in every single category. The judges now have the opportunity to share the longlisted books with school pupils before making their decisions.
Tiny Owl Publishing also received special mention among a noteworthy group of successful small publishers. A Bottle of Happiness has previously been listed as one of the best children’s books of 2016 by the Sunday Times.
