Tower Hamlets Book Award 2010 unveils shortlist

5th July 2010

The six titles competing for the Tower Hamlets Book Award 2010 have been revealed.

Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, The Boy Who Fell Down Exit 43 by Harriet Goodwin and Pete Johnson's The TV Time Travellers are among the works in the running for the prize.

The Thornthwaite Inheritance by Gareth P. Jones, Sally Nicholls' Season of Secrets and The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams are the remaining shortlisted titles.

Now in its fourth year, the award is voted for by pupils from Tower Hamlets schools in years five to eight and is open to works of children's fiction. This year's winner will be named on November 26th.

'The aim is to encourage children to read, to bring children together to enable debate and discussion about books, and to motivate children to share the pleasure of reading,' the organisers explained.

Last year, the Tower Hamlets Book Award was won by Jeff Kinney for his Rodrick Rules.
