Judge Liz Pichon said "We have a brilliant selection, something for everyone. There's beautifully illustrated fiction, gripping stories, funny books and the FIRST comic strip style book with facts which is fantastic. We keep hearing that kids don't read anymore, but if you get the right books in front of them they really will - I've seen it. The Blue Peter Awards are a fantastic way of showcasing even more great books."
