The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals

I woke up this morning to tons of tweets about the winners of the Clip Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals. According to the official website...

The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK's oldest and most prestigious children's book awards. Often described by authors and illustrators as 'the one they want to win' - they are the gold standard in children's literature.


The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded by children's librarians for an outstanding book for children and young people.
