Roald Dahl Funny Prize :)

I think I may have to try to get to a Librarian conference in the UK this summer if there is one. Or at least go to the Book expo.

Nicolette Jones introduces the first Roald Dahl prize for children's books

On Monday the shortlist for the first Roald Dahl Funny Prize will be announced. It's the creation of the Children's Laureate, Michael Rosen, who had a giggly time choosing books with the other judges: Roald's granddaughter Sophie Dahl, the children's author Kaye Umansky, the children's illustrator Chris Riddell and the comedian Dara O'Briain.
