Awesome Book Awards 2020

The Awesome Book Awards is a prize that honours the best new fiction authors for young readers aged between 7 and 10. It is an annual competition run by Cranleigh Schools. To be eligible for the 2020 award, titles had to be a UK-based author’s debut novel, suitable for able readers in the listed age group, appealing to both boys and girls, and available in paperback from May 2018. Thousands of pupils from schools across the South east read the whole shortlist and will then vote for their favourite overall.
