Guardian's Children's Fiction Prize Shortlist Announced

The brilliant longlist for this year's coveted Guardians Childrens Fiction Prize has been weighed, measured, and slimmed down to the final four. And it looks like a battle between the US and the UK, with 2 exceptional contenders in each camp!
First, we have John Green, listed for the outstanding The Fault In Our Stars. 

And along with John, another of my favourite writers from the States; Rebecca Stead has been listed for her third wonderful children's novel; Liar & Spy.








Then in the UK camp, we find a really strong, much-loved and incredible author; David Almond has been shortlisted for the amazing The Boy Who Swam With Piranhas.
And last, be most assuredly not least; Katherine Rundell has made the grade with her second novel, Rooftoppers.
We wait breathlessly for the announcement, of course. But in the meantime, I'm going to read them all again!
