It is with great pride that we are able to announce that The Pond has been longlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2018.
Out of 90 nominated titles, The Pond is among 20 other titles on the longlist. The CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal is the only prize in the UK to solely reward distinguished illustration in children’s books.
The CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Book Awards are celebrating 80 years this year.
Published in May 2017, The Pond is a touching picture book about a young boy, and his family, overcoming the loss of his father. This colourful, emotional book is filled with natural imagery, and teaches children not only about death and loss, but the importance of the natural world. The paperback edition was published February 2018.
Perfect, Cathy Fisher’s first picture book also written by Nicola Davies, made the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal longlist in 2017.
