…and the work has begun! The submisisons deadline for the Little Rebels Children’s Book Award – January 11th 2013- has been and gone. A total of 20 publishers have submitted 69 books. A fantastic start for this new award. We’ve been delighted by the sheer volume submitted and by the variety of bold and exciting radical fiction published in 2012 by both the big children’s publishing houses and the indies. Shortlisting has now begun. Expect an announcement about the chosen titles this April.
