All three age categories once again show the fresh perspective that class teachers can bring to the judging process in their search for books which can “enhance all aspects of literacy learning”, as required by the criteria.
The 7-11 category features the second book in translation from Pushkin Press, The Murderer's Ape by Swedish author Jakob Wegelius. Past winner Gill Lewis’ Sky Dancer, has repeated the success of Sky Hawk, which won this category in 2012. We also have Costa award- winning The Explorer by Katherine Rundell and Branford Boase winner Kick by Mitch Johnson. Previous UKLA shortlistee S.E Durrant with Running on Empty and picture book artist Peter Brown’s debut novel The Wild Robot complete this category.
