CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children's Book Award Winners 2017:
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys and
There is a Tribe of Children by Lane Smith
Double American Triumph for 2017’s CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals
Lane Smith, meanwhile – the talent behind the revolutionary The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales and the modern classic It’s a Book – brings what the New York Times saw as a ‘Chaplinesque charm, skillfully blending slapstick and melancholy’ to There is a Tribe of Kids, a typically witty and unexpected exploration of collective nouns. The emphasis here is on curiosity, discovery and togetherness, all the things that make childhood that most precious of times.
