Entries for feistiest children’s book award now closed!

Submissions are now closed for the UK’s one and only award for radical children’s fiction, the Alliance of Radical Booksellers’ Little Rebels Children’s Book Award. Perhaps award administrators always says this but…truly, the submissions pile seems bigger than ever. We have at least 4 boxes full of titles submitted by a wonderful mix of UK publishers from the tiniest independents to the biggest children’s book ‘players’. Fingers crossed, this award will continue to thrive and, in doing so, we hope it will begin to trace and showcase a canon of radical children’s book publishing in the UK. Now for the hard work of shortlisting…fig rolls, tea mugs and quite a bit of head scratching. Watch out for a shortlist announcement at the end March/early April 2016. And get this date in your diary for the winner announcement: Saturday May 7th 2016, London Radical Bookfair!
