From the Author:

First comprehensive survey of children's book awards
This is intended as a readable survey of modern children's literature in English and how it has developed. It aims to be a non-prescriptive guide, mainly for adults, through the forest of children's story. The book covers 39 major awards including well-known and long-established ones such as the Newbery and Carnegie Medals, prizes instigated by the commercial sector, such as the Smarties Prize and the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year, as well as nationally sponsored awards for fiction, picture books and non-fiction, world wide. Complete lists of winners and runners-up of the awards form the meat of the text, this is sandwiched between a slice of introduction which includes a brief history of children and books, and a slice of comments from authors - both winners and those who have not (yet?)won an award - and critics and librarians, with a section 'Did the right book always win?', which examines the criteria used by the various judging panels. As well as being guide for adults wishing to buy good children's books, it is intended as a tool for those researching the history of the children's book industry.
