The Laugh Out Loud Book Awards
In June 2018, Michael Rosen announced the shortlist for the Lollies aka ‘The Laugh Out Loud Book Awards’ 2018 – a truly hilarious selection of books for children of all ages.
Since then, schools and children in the UK and Ireland have been voting for their favourites in each of the three categories: Picture Books, Books for 6–8-year-olds and Books for 9–13-year-olds. Now that the tens of thousands of votes have been counted, it’s time to announce the winners!
Attend the awards – from your classroom!
