David Walliams shortlisted for Red House Children's Book Award

30th October 2012

Comedian and author David Walliams has been nominated for 2013's Red House Children's Book Award, the only national book award that is entirely voted for by children, for his novel Gangsta Granny.

Walliams, who is also in contention for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, is up against Elen Caldecott's Operation Eiffel Tower and Jonathan Meres' The World of Norm: May Contain Nuts in the prize's Books For Younger Readers category.

The Red House Children's Book Award was founded in 1980 by Pat Thompson, a member of the Federation of Children's Book Groups, to celebrate the books that children themselves love reading.

Previous winner Sophie McKenzie, author of The Medusa Project: Hit Squad, is in contention in the Books For Older Readers category, alongside Suzanne Lafleur for Eight Keys and Pittacus Lore for The Lorien Legacies:?The Power of Six.

There are four titles in the Books for Younger Children category: Welcome to Alien School by Caryl Hart and Ed Eaves, Can You See Sassoon? by Sam Usher, Spooky Spooky House by Andrew Weale and Lee Wildish and Dog Loves Drawing by Louise Yates.

The winners will be revealed on February 23rd next year in London.
