Superb news: two Tiny Owl titles have been nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal! A Bottle of Happiness and The Elephant’s Umbrella join 114 other titles nominated for one of the oldest and most prestigious children’s book awards in the UK.
The CILIP Kate Greenaway medal is awarded to a book for children or young people judged to be outstanding for its illustrations. The award criteria state: ‘The whole work should provide pleasure from a stimulating and satisfying visual experience which leaves a lasting impression.’ It also takes into consideration how well the illustrations work with the book’s text.
The longlist will be announced in February, the shortlist in March, and the winners in June. It is the UK’s only literary award to be judged solely by librarians, and the shortlisted titles are also read by children’s reading groups in schools and public libraries.
We are so thrilled to have not one but two titles included on this superb list of talent. Congratulations to the illustrators and authors: Ehsan Abdollahi and Pippa Goodhart, and Ali Khodai and Laleh Jaffari!
