Waterstones Children’s Book Prize Winner

[Guardian Children’s Books article about the win]

In slightly belated news The Pirates Next Door  by Aardman animator Jonny Duddle has been named not only as the section winner but as the overall winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2012.  It is the first picture book to win the prize and it is great to see a book for younger children scooping such an accolade.

Have you read it? If so, chime in on the comments and let us know what you think. It’s on its way to us and a review will follow shortly.
