Big and hearty congratulations to Patrick Ness and illustrator Jim Kay!!! A Monster Calls has picked up both the prestigious CILIP Carnegie Medal and the Kate Greenaway Medal. I couldn't be more pleased for them both. This is a truly wondrous and magnificent book that deserves all the success and accolades it has received.
Well done to you both! I'm absolutely certain that the spirit of Siobhan Dowd is celebrating with you.
