Soldier’s Game Shortlisted for a Scottish Children’s Book Award
The nine shortlisted authors were announced on Monday by Scottish Book Trust in their lovely offices off the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. There are three books shortlisted in each category.
Shortlisted alongside Soldier’s Game in the 8 – 11 years category are Out of the Depths by Cathy MacPhail and The World of Norm: May Contain Nuts by Jonathan Meres.
Winners of this award are decided by primary school children in Scotland, so if your school isn’t already signed up then why not ask your teacher if you can take part. You can find out about how to get registered by visiting the Scottish Book Trust website. But you’ve got plenty of time because the winners are not announced until World Book Day next year. We can’t wait!
