Carnegie and Kate Greenaway 2014 Shortlists Announced

18th March 2014 - 12 Midnight

Themes of kidnap and captivity dominate the shortlisted titles on the 2014 CILIP Carnegie Medal shortlist, while if she were to win with her novel Blood Family, about the rescue of a boy from his mother's abusive partner, author Anne Fine would achieve an unprecedented hatrick, having previously won with Flour Babies and Goggle-Eyes.

The full shortlist comprises: All the Truth That's in Me by Julie Berry; The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks; The Child's Elephant by Rachel Campbell-Johnston; Ghost Hawk by Susan Cooper; Blood Family by Anne Fine; Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell; Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead and The Wall by William Sutcliffe.


Helen Thompson, chair of the CILIP Carnegie Kate Greenaway judging panel, said: 'The recent debate about gender bias and children's books is wholly absent from our CILIP Carnegie list, with all of the books holding great appeal for both boys and girls - placing fantastic storytelling at their heart. Books that tackle dark themes, such as kidnap, war and orphaned children, but which do so with humanity, sensitivity and, in places, lyricism.'

Fun in parallel with the Carnegie award, the CILIP Kate Greenaway shortlist for best children's picture book has also been announced, and includes two nominations for Jon Klassen. The full shortlist comprises: The Paper Dolls by Rebecca Cobb (illustrator) and Julia Donaldson (author); Where My Wellies Take Me by Olivia Gill (illustrator) and Michael Morpurgo and Clare Morpurgo (authors); The Day the Crayons Quit by Oliver Jeffers (illustrator) and Drew Daywalt (author); This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen; The Dark by Jon Klassen (illustrator) and Lemony Snicket (author); Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf by Dave McKean (illustrator) and David Almond (author) and Oliver by Birgitta Sif (Walker Books)


The winners of both medals will be announced on 23rd June and will each receive a golden medal and £500 worth of books to donate to their local library. Since 2000, the winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal has also been awarded the £5,000 Colin Mears Award cash prize.
