Blue Peter Book Awards 2019

I am over the moon THE HOUSE WITH CHICKEN LEGS has been longlisted for Best Story in the Blue Peter Book Awards! The ten books on the longlist are all BRILLIANT. Just look at this stellar line up:


Four judges (Ewan Vinnicombe, Darren Chetty, Louise Pentland and Alex T Smith) have been given the virtually impossible task of choosing three of these books to go on the shortlist, which will be announced on 8th November, and then selected schools will help pick the overall winner!

Whatever happens at the next stage, I am just hugely thrilled that THE HOUSE WITH CHICKEN LEGS has got this far! It’s a real honour, and feels absolutely wonderful. Huge congratulations to all the longlisted authors and illustrators!
