The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children's Book Award 2020 Winners

The CILIP Carnegie Medal 2020 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm British author Anthony McGowan’s luminous novella Lark as the winner of the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2020.

McGowan, who has previously been longlisted and shortlisted for the prize with three out of the four books from his novella series Truth of Things (Brock, Pike and Rook) scoops the medal this year with Lark – an arresting, reverent tale about survival and unbreakable bonds, set against the backdrop of the stark and stormy North Yorkshire Moors.

 

‘[Lark] was admired for its clear, simple storytelling; combining authentic characters and realistic situations in pared down prose with blunt humour, genuine tension and moments of pure poetry as fleeting and transcendent as birdsong. […] The book leaves the reader with hope for the future; that through the bonds of love from friends and family things can and will get better.’

The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2020 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm Australian artist, illustrator and author Shaun Tan as this year’s winner of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. He is recognised for his book Tales from Inner City.

Every detail of this arresting, heartfelt and beautiful book marks it as a masterpiece of illustration. With outstanding technique and awe-inspiring invention, Tan conveys the intricate, intimate relationship between humans and animals in this fascinating and evocative work.

 

‘Never have the bonds between us and the beautiful creatures we share the earth with been so exquisitely rendered with such prescience. The judging panel were moved, amused and astonished by the artistry and imagination of a stunning book that should be widely shared and celebrated.’
