The excellent Books for Keeps site that I follow has alerted me to the fact that The International Board on Books for Young People UK section (IBBY UK) has announced the three British children’s books that it is nominating for the prestigious 2014 IBBY international Honour List. The nominations highlight the lives of today’s young asylum seekers.

Writing: Frank Cottrell Boyce, The Unforgotten Coat, Walker Books, 2011.

Illustration: Sarah Garland, Azzi in Between, Frances Lincoln Children’s Books, 2012.

Translation: Howard Curtis, In The Sea There Are Crocodiles, Random House/David Fickling Books, 2012 (author: Fabio Geda)
