The School Library Association (SLA) awards were announced on 25 November, and Nibweb member Anita Ganeri was honoured with the Hachette Children’s Group Award for Outstanding Contribution to Information Books. Launched in 2017, the award is given to an eminent UK writer or illustrator of information books for children, to mark an exceptional contribution to excellence in their field. Here’s what the SLA has to say about Anita’s work:

‘Known for her lively writing style and ability to relate sophisticated subject matter in an engaging way for children. Anita is the recipient of the Blue Peter Book award for a title in the highly successful Horrible Geography series. With over 500 titles to her name, Anita has also written extensively on subjects such as history, religion and PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education) topics and is a true champion of children’s non-fiction. If you see her name on the cover of a book, then you know that it will be accurate and suitable for the suggested age range. For teachers and librarians, her name is a guarantee that you will be adding quality to your book collections.’
