Costa Book Award Judges announced.

Posted on September 29, 2017

The judges for this year’s Costa Book Award have been announced…and I’m one of them.

Along with Sanchita Basu De Sarkar from the Children’s Bookshop in Muswell Hill and Fiona Noble from The Bookseller, I’ll be one of the category judges for the Costa Children’s Book Award.

We’ve been spending the summer reading, and I mean READING. This is a photo of just some of the forty plus children’s and YA titles I’ve been lucky enough to read this summer.

Our shortlist is will be revealed on Tuesday 21st November 2017…it’s going to be a very, very difficult decision.
