Guardian Children's Fiction Prize longlist unveiled

6th June 2011

The longlist for the annual Guardian Children's Fiction Prize has been announced, with eight authors in contention for the award.

Founded in 1967, the prize recognises works of children's literature by British or Commonwealth authors published in the preceding 12 months and is the only children's award to be judged by writers.

This year's longlist includes My Name is Mina by David Almond, Small Change for Stuart by Lissa Evans, Frances Hardinge's Twilight Robbery and Momentum by Saci Lloyd.

Moon Pie by Simon Mason, My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher, Andy Mulligan's Return to Ribblestrop and Mr Gum and the Secret Hideout by Andy Stanton complete the list.

The shortlist for the 2011 award will be revealed in the autumn, with the winner announced shortly afterwards.

Last year's Guardian Children's Fiction Prize was won by Michelle Paver for Ghost Hunter, described by the judging panel as a 'warm-hearted, dramatically tense, many-layered novel'.
