Early Years Awards 2010 winners revealed

3rd September 2010

Reading charity Booktrust has announced the winners of the Early Years Awards 2010, which recognise excellence in works aimed at the under-fives.

One Smart Fish, Chris Wormell's story about a fish with the desire to walk on land, won the best picture book for children up to five years old category.

Levi Pinfold was crowned the best emerging illustrator for children up to five with The Django, a tale inspired by jazz musician Jean 'Django' Reinhardt.

The charity also named I Love My Mummy by Giles Andreae, which looks at the special bond between mothers and their children, as the winner of the best book for babies aged under one category.

Wendy Cooling, the chair of the judging panel, commented: 'The winning books are all special; they invite children to laugh, share, think and wonder. They represent the diversity to be found in children's books, with texts that are perfect for sharing.'

Last year, Oliver Who Travelled Far and Wide by Mara Bergman won the best under-fives' picture book accolade, while Katie Cleminson was named the best emerging illustrator for Box of Tricks. Ed Vere scooped the baby book prize with Chick.
