The shortlist was compiled by a group of judges, two of whom were Marie Bishop B5 as the young judge, and Ms. Lundon the librarian. The shortlist represents the best in Irish Children’s Literature each year. All titles can be seen on the poster below and are available for loan.

The Shadowing Scheme allows reading groups all over Ireland to read and vote on their favourite titles. The winner of this receives the coveted Children’s Choice Award. Last year’s winner was our favourite The Call by Peadar O’Guilin! We can’t wait to see what the reader favourite will be this year! The award ceremony will be held in May so all will be revealed then. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ“šโค
