  • Sheffield Children's Book Awards were launched in 1988 to encourage children and young people to read - and to highlight the best literature published each year.
  • The awards celebrate books and what they do for the Sheffield community.
  • Hundreds of children and young people from across the city take part every year - they can vote for their favourite book through local schools and libraries.
