2016 Notable books announced!

The Book of the Year Notables list has been announced.

CBCA National Chair Professor Margot Hillel announced, "Once again the CBCA is excited about the diversity and quality of Australian children's books, with themes this year of war, refugees and fantasy. It’s wonderful to see more books of poetry and once again, outstanding illustrations. There were over 400 books entered this year, the largest category was for Younger Readers with 122 submissions. Clearly there is a real depth of talent producing great books for children and young people. The Children’s Book Council of Australia is delighted to be able to highlight these excellent new titles.”

There are 22 Early Childhood Books; 16 Older Reader Books; 14 Younger Readers; 15 Eve Pownall Information Books and 22 Picture Books that have been 'long listed'.
