The Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize began life back in 2005, with Stuart Hill’s fantasy The Cry of the Icemark bagging the inaugural award.
The Prize now covers three key areas of children’s publishing – Picture Books, Younger Fiction and Older Fiction. Each year, of the three category winners from the 18-strong shortlist, one title will also have the honour of walking away with the overall Prize.
