There are lots of books worthy of attention in the shortlists, so we thought we’d give them a bit of a chance to shine by breaking up the posts into categories. First up is the children’s fiction list for those of you wanting to read together with the kids:


Prime Minister’s Literary Awards shortlist for children’s fiction:

Silver Buttons, Bob Graham (Walker Books )  – picture book

Kissed by the Moon, Alison Lester (Puffin) – picture book
