The ALCS/Society of Authors prize for children’s non-fiction was awarded at a reception in the House of Commons on 1 December. The winner – from a strong field that included Nibweb-member Anne Rooney’s ‘Space Record Breakers’
– was ‘Atlas of Adventures’ by Rachel Williams, illustrated by Lucy Letherland.
There’s a lot of great non-fiction out there – Nibweb members are keen that bookshops and reviewers start to realise this!
