Another Award for the Fantastic Patrick Ness, and more great news.

Last night (November 4th) Patrick Ness won yet another award for his fantastic and amazing work. This time, the book honoured was A Monster Calls, which won the Galaxy National Book Award. As such... Patrick will be featured on Booked, their six-part television series on More4, which will begin on November 13th.... and... you can now vote for A Monster Calls to win the overall Book of the Year award.
A Monster Calls has also been shortlisted for the Red House Book Awards, the only UK book award voted on exclusively by young readers.
And, if that isn't enough for you... A Monster Calls has been longlisted for the extremely prestigious CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals. Yes, that's right...both of them!
My very serious advice to you at this time is... if you haven't yet read A Monster Calls, this is one book you really must read. It is no exaggeration for me to say, it will change you. Riveting and deeply affective, this is perhaps the most beautiful book I've read in a long time.
Here's the link for Patrick's own website, where you can keep up with this news and many other pieces of information.
