2019 Shortlist: Children's Illustrated & Non-fiction Book of the Year

Alice O’Keeffe, Books Editor at The Bookseller, said: “Our shortlists this year took the judges from Georgian London to the Second World War to contemporary New York. There are books from exciting fresh voices at the very start of their career, contrasted with books from with well-established brand authors at the top of their game. These are the books that sum up 2018 but which, we think, will be read for years to come.”

"more than a fantastically funny story – it’s a book that will encourage talk, play, rhyme and laughter"

The latest book in the Oi Frog! series sees the return of our favourite characters who are cheeky, adorable and ever so clever. Kes Gray and Jim Field’s creation is more than a fantastically funny story – it’s a book that will encourage talk, play, rhyme and laughter for everyone in the family. Younger readers will love hearing the story and older ones will enjoy the challenge of trickier vocabulary in the book.
