Lauren Child, E. L. Norry and Chris Riddell all featured in BookTrust’s Great Books Guide 2021

We are delighted to see three of our authors’ and illustrators’ work featured in BookTrust’s Great Books Guide 2021. In this, they’ve collated 100 of the best children’s books this year, carefully chosen to engage children and make reading exciting.

In the 4-5 years category, Neil Gaiman’s Pirate Stew illustrated by Chris Riddell is featured as a great bedtime story book. In the 6-7 years category comes Lauren Child’s The Goody – also shortlisted for The Little Rebels Award – with Amber Undercover by Em Norry following in the 10-11 years category (one of her short stories also appears in the featured anthology Happy Here.)

BookTrust is the UK’s largest children’s reading charity – each year they reach millions of young people with books, resources and support. They believe that the “right” book is always the book a child wants to read – this guide will hopefully inspire children to find that book.
