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.”

"clearly written with engaging graphics and doesn't skirt around the nuances of issue"

As political decisions are at the forefront of the news while opinions and fake news flood social media, it's increasingly important for students to learn how to look at things analytically and make their own judgements.

This book is clearly written with engaging graphics and doesn't skirt around the nuances of issues, showing that things aren't always as clear-cut or black-and-white as some people would have us believe.
