In 1946 the CBCA established annual book awards to promote children’s books of high literary and artistic quality. These awards are now the most influential and highly respected in Australia.
Last week, the 2020 Book of the Year winners were announced. We congratulate all the authors and illustrators who were shortlisted and winners of these prestigious awards.
We have highly recommended the two books that are suitable for secondary readers in our book of the week posts this year. Make sure you put them on your must-read list!
Book of the Year: Older Readers
Eve Pownall Award
Books that have the prime intention of documenting factual material with consideration given to imaginative presentation, interpretation and variation of style.
