Readings' Children's Book Prize 2015

Time for yet another prize shortlist- this one the Readings Children's Book Prize 2015. Readings is a great Melbourne bookstore with five shops throughout the city.

The Readings Children's Prize was established only last year (see the 2014 shortlist here).

Rivertime - Trace Balla (see my review) WINNER

Ophelia and the Marvellous Boy - Karen Foxlee

Figgy in the World - Tamsin Janu

How to Save the Universe in Ten Easy Steps - Allison Rushby

The Mapmaker Chronicles: Race to the End of the World - A.L. Tait

Stuff Happens: Jack - Tony Wilson

See the judging panel comments here. I'm disappointed to have not read any of these books yet.

The winner will be announced in June. Rivertime was voted the winner.

Ophelia is the one that I've heard most about, and the one I'm most disappointed in myself for not having read.
