Carnegie Kate Greenaway 2016!

This blog was scheduled to 'go live' on Sunday but obviously didn't & I forgot about it! Never mind, means I can add a link to the real list plus BfK reviews which is slightly different to my own...

Dusting off my blog (regular twitter followers will know I have a better excuse than usual for not blogging: I called her Bea) to share my personal longlist for #Carnegie16.  The CKG nominations were announced in October and I had already read about half of the Carnegie, far fewer of the Greenaway, but decided not to read any more before the shortlists as my reading time has been pretty limited lately!  So of those that I'd read, these are my top 20.  Hopefully the official list (announced on the 16th February) includes a few of them...
