CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children's Book Award Shortlists 2018

With previous winners including C.S. Lewis, Neil Gaiman, Shirley Hughes, Terry Pratchett, and current Waterstones Children’s Laureate Lauren Child, the CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Medals have a wonderful track record in recognising the very best in children’s writing and illustration. 

True stories and timely issues inspire books across both shortlists this year, from Angie Thomas’ The Hate U Give – inspired by Black Lives Matter – to Debi Gliori’s exploration of depression in Night Shift.

The winning Medals will be presented on Monday 18 June. We wish every nominee the very best of luck!

The CILIP Carnegie Medal 2018 Shortlist

Now in its 81st year, the CILIP Carnegie Medal is the oldest award of its type to celebrate fine writing for children and young people.

You're called Fidge and you're nearly eleven. You've been hurled into a strange world. You have three companions: two are unbelievably weird and the third is your awful cousin Graham. You have to solve a series of nearly impossible clues. You need to deal with a cruel dictator and three thousand Wimbley Woos (yes, you read that sentence correctly). And the whole situation - the whole, entire thing - is your fault. 

Wed Wabbit is an adventure story about friendship, danger and the terror of never being able to get back home again. And it's funny. It's seriously funny.

Anapra is one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the Mexican city of Juarez - twenty metres outside town lies a fence, and beyond it, America - the dangerous goal of many a migrant.

Faustino is one such trying to escape from the gang he's been working for. He's dipped into a pile of dollars he was supposed to be hiding and now he's on the run. He and his friend, Arturo, have only 36 hours to replace the missing money, or they're as good as dead.

Watching over them is Saint Death. Saint Death (or Santissima Muerte) - she of pure bone and charcoal-black eye, she of absolute loyalty and neutral morality, holy patron to rich and poor, to prostitute and narco-lord, criminal and police-chief. A folk saint, a rebel angel, a sinister guardian.

A darkly gripping tale of two girls separated by thirty years but pulled together by the looming house of Thornhill.

As she unpacks in her new bedroom, Ella is irresistibly drawn to the big old house that she can see out of her window. Surrounded by overgrown gardens, barbed wire fences and 'keep out' signs, it looks derelict. But that night, a light goes on in one of the windows. And the next day she sees a girl in the grounds. Ella is hooked. The house has a story to tell. She is sure of it.

Enter Thornhill, Institute for Children, and discover the dark secrets that lie within. But once inside, will you ever leave?
