Lauren Beard's 'The Mummy Shop' shortlisted for the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards!

Congratulations are in order to Lauren Beard! The Mummy Shop, illustrated by Lauren, written by Abie Longstaff and published by Scholastic, has been shortlisted for the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards under the Never Too Young category! How exciting! 

Here's some more info from the awards:

The 8th year of the Inspiration Book Awards will be launched in Children's Book Week, (7 October 2013), and we are hoping to continue to be more successful each year. The last round of the Awards again saw  another massive increase in the number of votes cast. Over 6000 people voted! The Coventry awards are unique in the country in that they have something for all ages, including adults and involve the whole family and the whole community and they are obviously the ideal vehicle to promote Reading For Life!

A series of panels comprising of librarians, teachers, students and education advisers have been meeting to select the short listed books for each award. Our criteria have been books that inspire readers, books that will get you hooked on reading! 

The voting will take place between October and February - good luck Lauren and Abie!
