The shortlist for the 2017 Laugh Out Loud Awards (The Lollies), to celebrate the funniest children’s books has been announced and we have the chance for you to win the entire 9-13 year shortlist!
Michael Rosen, children’s novelist, poet and former Children’s Laureate, announced the shortlist, created by Scholastic, the world’s largest publisher and distributor of children’s books.
Having long championed humorous books for children Rosen said of the shortlist:
“This is a collection of 12 whizzy, crazy, hilarious books. They are guaranteed to tickle. Parents and teachers wondering how to keep your children interested in reading, why not start here? And you can always start them off by reading them out loud – funny voices an’ all!”
Rosen and his judging panel, consisting of Nicolette Jones, journalist and Sunday Times Children’s Book Editor and Katie Thistleton, presenter and host of the CBBC Children’s Book Club, were tasked with making the selected shortlist from over 130 books submitted by children’s publishers.
The Lollies are awarded in three categories: Best Laugh Out Loud Picture Book, Best Laugh Out Loud Book for 6-8s and Best Laugh Out Loud Book for 9-13s and we have the chance for you to win the 9-13s collection in it’s entirety!
