Hot on the heels of my last post on the Scottish Children's Book Awards Shortlist come the Carnegie and Greenaway winners!
winning books are tales of triumph over terror. In Gardner's Maggot
the unlikely young hero Standish who, like his creator, is dyslexic,
stands up to a sinister dictatorship whilst friends and family around
him 'disappear'. Pinfold's Black
sees a little girl called Small Hope facing fear head-on in the form
of a monstrous giant black dog.
Congratulations to all concerned!
