Jóhannes Birgir Jensson (jbjensson) | 5 comments I was creating this award list of the winners of the Icelandic Children Book Awards and it is working as intended (yes years are correct, couple of years had two winners and couple of years had no winners, due to nothing being good enough).

Except for the language chosen for one of the last ones, Benjamin Dove appears in English in the list and not as the original Benjamín dúfa. Since this list is all Icelandic language books it sticks out like a sore thumb.

What determines the language edition used in the list?

It will be the default edition of the work. The edition shelved by the most users will be the default edition -- unless the author is a Goodreads member and has manually changed it.

Also, these two awards are apparently the same, and should be merged:
