I'm up against two other brilliant-looking books in the 'facts' category but hope that the Silly Book's unique selection of jokes, fun facts, poems, amazing info and silly things to do will win the day. And of course, I have Scott Garrett's fab illustrations and Bloomsbury's ace design team in my favour too!
|The shortlisted books|
Michael Morpurgo (lovely man and great writer) appeared on Blue Peter to help announce the shortlist and he was also awarded the GOLD Blue Peter badge, no less, for inspiring so many young readers. What a great idea. You can see a video of the Book Award part of the show here.
You can read more about the Blue Peter Book Awards here and can find out how you can get involved as a judge in future if you are at a UK primary school.
