Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I've read four or five, and enjoyed all of them.

Northern Lights, btw, is known as The Golden Compass in the U.S.


message 4: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited Aug 24, 2012 10:50AM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Removed, for not actually being listed as a Carnegie Medal Winner on the source list:
Foster Fox: A 10,000 Lakes Tale (added to the list as the sole book voted for by its own author).


message 5: by Phillip (last edited Jun 19, 2013 06:08AM) (new)

Phillip Edwards Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner has won the 2013 CILIP Carnegie Medal - the UK's most prestigious award for children's writing.

The author, who is dyslexic, slammed Michael Gove's new curriculum for excluding children "with a different way of seeing and thinking" and said that "without books I would not be a writer and without the zeal of librarians I would not have won this award."


message 6: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Edwards The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks which was rejected by publishers a decade ago because of its "lack of hope" has won the 2014 CILIP Carnegie Medal.


message 10: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell The Voyage of QV66 and The Magic Faraway Tree look to be on this list in error.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yep. Removed.
