The Red House Children’s Book Award

There is still time for you to have your opinion count.
From Press Release:
The Red House Children’s Book Award, the only national award for children’s books that is voted for entirely by children themselves, is highly respected by teachers, parents and librarians, and has brought acclaim and strong sales to past winners such as J.K. Rowling, Patrick Ness, Suzanne Collins, Michael Morpurgo, Andy Stanton, Malorie Blackman and Anthony Horowitz.
