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. 

So, without further ado, here are the shortlistees for this year’s Carnegie and Kate Greenaway medals, the award chosen by librarians and famed for being the medal that authors and illustrators most want to win.
