Harry Hill wins Surrey Libraries' Children's Book Award

12th January 2011

Comedian Harry Hill has won the latest Surrey Libraries' Children's Book Award with his Tim the Tiny Horse at Large.

Organised by Surrey County Council's library service children's team and sponsored by Procter and Gamble, the competition saw more than 1,200 local schoolchildren vote for their favourite book from a five-strong shortlist.

Hill said he was 'delighted' to have won the award for Tim the Tiny Horse at Large, which is his second children's book.

'I have talked to Tim today and he's thrilled too. I just hope he doesn't get too big headed,' the comedian quipped.

The other books shortlisted for the award were Ros Asquith's Fibby Libby: A Shark Ate My Socks, Dinkin Dings and the Frightening Things by Guy Bass, Paul Collicutt's City in Peril and Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles by Rupert Kingfisher.

Last year, the Surrey Libraries' Children's Book Award was taken home by Andy Stanton for his Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear.
