Book Awards: Is It Children's Books' Turn To Shine?

Posted at 7:13AM Thursday 28 Jan 2016

It was only the second time in the award's history that a children's book had won - and it was over a decade since Philip Pullman scooped the prize for The Amber Spyglass.
But change could be afoot as, only last month, The Fox and the Star - an illustrated fable about a fox and his friend - beat the competition to be named Waterstones Book of the Year.
