Following up from winning the Waterstone’s Children’s Prize 2011, Sita Brahmachari’s wonderful Artichoke Hearts has been nominated for four more awards. The nominations range from those voted for by children, to nominations from librarians, children, schools, the public and booksellers – so the support for the book is pretty widespread!
Artichoke Hearts has been shortlisted for the Peters Book of the Year 2011, Fabulous Awards for Books 2012, The Berkshire Book Award 2012 and longlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Berkshire and FAB award winners are announced in March and the Carnegie Medal in June. Congratulations to Patrick Ness whose wonderful A Monster Calls won the Peters Book of the Year in January.
