Red House Book Awards 2014 are out now! Children and young adults all across the UK are being asked to vote for their favourites from three categories, that include former UK Children's Laureate Julia Donaldson, Alex T. Smith for the latest in his absolutely delightful Claude series, and the marvellous Eoin Colfer. This is the only UK nationwide book award voted for entirely by children, so it is a real honour.
Voting will close in mid-January, and the winners will be announced at the Southbank Centre on Saturday the 22nd of February. Good luck to everyone on the shortlist!
