Crossan and Riddell win Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Awards

Chris Riddell has broken records by becoming the first illustrator to win three CILIP Kate Greenaway medals, picking up the prestigious award this year for The Sleeper and the Spindle (written by Neil Gaiman). He is also the first reigning children’s laureate to win the medal.

The CILIP Carnegie award was presented to verse novel One by Sarah Crossan, which has this year also won The Bookseller's YA Book Prize 2016 and the Irish Children's Book of the Year Award.
