CKG 2014 shortlist predictions

The official shortlists will be announced on Tuesday 18th March but earlier this week I, along with some other fantastic librarians and bloggers, made our predictions for the Carnegie shortlist on acaseforbooks.  I thought I'd just quickly put mine on here as well:

but also share my Greenaway predictions having had a chance to look through 17* of them today:
Open Very Carefully by Nicola O'Byrne (illustrator) and Nick Bromley (author) (Nosy Crow)
Weasels by Elys Dolan (Nosy Crow)
Puss Jekyll Cat Hyde by Jill Barton (illustrator) and Joyce Dunbar (author) (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)
The Day the Crayons Quit by Oliver Jeffers (illustrator) and Drew Daywalt (author) (HarperCollins Children's Books)
Mouse Bird Snake Wolf by David McKean (illustrator) and David Almond (author) (Walker Books)
Oliver by Birgitta Sif (Walker Books)
Jemmy Button by Jennifer Uman and Valerio Vidali (illustrators) and Alix Barzelay (author) (Templar)
Too Noisy! by Ed Vere (illustrator) and Malachy Doyle (author) (Walker Books)

This personal shortlist could very well be different to the 'real' one as I didn't think too much about the criteria, I just went for those I loved for their cleverness, cuteness (not allowed in the judging room) and originality!  My favourite is The Day the Crayons Quit.

*I wasn't able to get hold of:
The Dark by Jon Klassen (illustrator) and Lemony Snicket (author) (Orchard Books)
Where My Wellies Take Me by Olivia Lomenech Gill (illustrator) and Clare and Michael Morpurgo (authors)(Templar)

The Journey Home by Frann Preston-Gannon (Pavilion Children's Books)
