Yesterday, this year’s shortlisted books for Scholastic’s LOLLIES awards were announced, and I am delighted to say that we will be shadowing them in the Library!
Last year, we voted for ourfavourite title in the picture book category – the ever-popular I Need a Wee by Sue Hendra, which won overall in its category. This book is still rarely on our shelves which is proof of how children love it.
This year, we have a range of different books to choose from, as follows:
Picture book category:
- The Prince of Pants – by Alan MacDonald and Sarah McIntyre
- Eat Your People! – by Lou Kuenzler and David Wojtowycz
- Oi Dog! – by Kes and Claire Gray and Jim Field
- Danny McGee – by Andy Stanton and Neal Layton

We are waiting for the titles to be delivered so watch this space! I’d love as many people as possible to get involved so I’ll look at arranging some lunchtime sessions where we can take a look at them altogether.
If you’ve already read some of these – or maybe ALL of these – come to see me and tell me what you thought!
