Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards 2010

It's time, once again, for the presentation of the short list for The Irish Book Awards 2010. What I want to focus on here, of course are the selections for the DAA Irish Children's Book of the Year in two category sections; junior and senior.
Junior section is comprised of the following four truly wonderful books:
- On The Road With Mavis And Marge by Niamh Sharkey, published by Walker Books
- Adam's Pirate Treasure by Benji Bennett, published by Adams Printing Press
- The Heart And The Bottle by Oliver Jeffers published by Harper Collins Children's Books
- Alfie Green And The Chocolate Cosmos by Joe O'Brien, published by O'Brien Press

The senior section also has four wonderful selections:
- Ask Amy Green: Bridesmaid Blitz by Sarah Webb, published by Walker Books
- Skulduggery Pleasant: Mortal Coil by Derek Landy, published by Harper Collins Children's Books
- Timecatcher by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, published by Orion
- Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne, published by David Fickling

These awards are selected by popular vote, so go on line ASAP and vote for the book you'd like most to win in these and all the other categories. I know I'm going to have a difficult time selecting my favourites!
