2020 CBCA Shortlist
Well in these strange times of cancellations and postponements, it’s good that some things we have come to rely upon each year do keep going – if a little differently. The Children’s Book Council of Australia announced the 2020 Book of the Year Shortlists. This year, instead of a live event there was a recorded announcement. Congratulations to all authors, illustrators and publishers.
For Inside a dog readers, here is the shortlist for Book of the Year in the Older Reader Category.
The Boy Who Steals Houses by C. G. Drews
How It Feels to Float by Helena Fox
Ghost Bird by Lisa Fuller
When the Ground is Hard by Malla Nunn
Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte
This Is How We Change the Ending by Vikki Wakefield
What a bunch of terrific books. Makes you realise that LoveOzYA is thriving! Which have you read? What do you think?
And you can watch the full Shortlist announcement on Youtube which includes some appearances by many beloved Australian children’s authors.
