The Alligator's Mouth Award 2020 Longlist Bundle
The award, founded in 2018 by The Alligator’s Mouth children’s bookshop and The Bright Agency, celebrates the best books for 6-8-year-olds.
The longlist was chosen by a panel of children’s book experts including Nick Sharratt, winner of the inaugural prize; award winning author-illustrator Yasmeen Ismail; founder of the Bath Festival of Children’s Literature, John McLay; Specialist Literacy Teacher, Richard
Charlesworth; co-owners of The Alligator’s Mouth, Margaret Wallace-Jones and Tony West; and Arabella Stein, Director at The Bright Agency.
Last year’s top prize was awarded to Nick Sharratt for Nice Work for the Cat and the King (Alison Green Books, Scholastic Children’s Books) at a ceremony held at the Bright Emporium. This year, the judges will meet virtually to decide the winner and the prize will be announced on 25th June via a digital ceremony.
