Contenders unveiled for 2010 Royal Mail Awards

10th September 2010

The nine titles shortlisted in the 2010 Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children's Books have been named.

What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, Debi Gliori's Stormy Weather and Love From Louisa by Simon Puttock and Joe Kiddie are in the running for the readers aged under eight category.

In the younger readers award, The Dragon Whisperer by Lucinda Hare, John Fardell's The Secret of the Black Moon Moth and Invisible Fiends - Mr Mumbles by Barry Hutchison have been shortlisted.

The final category, which is for children's books aimed at those from 12 to 16 years, will be contested by Catherine MacPhail's Grass, Crossing The Line by Gillian Philip and Elizabeth Laird's The Witching Hour.

Jasmine Fassl, acting children's programme manager at the Scottish Book Trust, commented: 'The panel had a really tough time choosing from all the excellent books published in Scotland and has come up with a varied and brilliant shortlist in three categories.'

Last year, the three winners of the Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children's Books were Manfred the Baddie by Fardell, Lari Don's First Aid for Fairies and Other Fabled Beasts and Ostrich Boys by Keith Gray.
