The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children's Book Award 2021 Winners

The CILIP Carnegie Medal 2021 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm Jason Reynolds’ Look Both Ways as the winner of the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2021.

Utilising the framework of a group of children’s walk home from school to address sensitive and important issues, Reynolds’ endearing tale encourages young readers to empathise with others and recognise different people’s points of view.

 

Look Both Ways is a breathtakingly gripping collection of intertwined stories brimming with humour, empathy, and humanity. Each story has its own heart with deft characterisation and narrative voices that feel child-like and completely real.’

Ellen Krajewski, CHAIR OF JUDGES

The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2021 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm Sydney Smith’s Small in the City as the winner of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2021.

Rendering a deceptively simple story of a small child’s view of an urban metropolis in stunningly evocative artwork, Smith’s gorgeous and moving book perfectly captures the sense of awe and anxiety of being tiny in a vast and scary new environment.

 

‘An evocative and immersive book… a striking and atmospheric example of artistic storytelling skills which is almost cinematic in its depiction of a child’s view of an imposing urban landscape.’

Ellen Krajewski, CHAIR OF JUDGES
