The Laugh Out Loud Book Awards

Congratulations to the winners of the Lollies 2018!

Tens of thousands of children voted in the Lollies 2018, and we’re delighted to announce who they chose as winners of the Laugh Out Loud Book Awards 2018. The winners were announced on the 14th February 2019 at a laugh-out-loud awards ceremony that was streamed live to schools across the UK and Ireland.

Mr Bunny's Chocolate Factory

Best Laugh Out Loud Picture Book

Mr Bunny’s Chocolate Factory by Elys Dolan


As the owner of a large Chocolate Factory, Mr Bunny is never satisfied with his success. When Mr Bunny begins to expect too much of his staff at the Chocolate Factory, he is left to run it alone. Will Mr Bunny realise that many minds are better than one when trying to get a big job done well? Or will his chocolate empire melt under the pressure of running it alone?

The Big, Fat, Totally Bonkers Diary of Pig

Best Laugh Out Loud Book for 6-8-year-olds

The Big, Fat, Totally Bonkers Diary of Pig by Emer Stamp


Hurray! Pig is back to makes you chuckle and let off some lovely stinky farts. (Tee hee hee.) But listen! He is warning you: his new diary is big-time bonkers! You might not believe what you reads. Or mights you? Well, if Pig was reading it himself, he would be like, “Don’t be silly! Stuff like this would never happen to a pig! It’s totally impossible.” But it’s not. Just ask Duck or Cow, or Ki-Ki or Rusty. Yup: they all agrees. It’s one thousand percent true – and ten thousand percent bonkers!

Tom Gates: Epic Adventure (Kind Of)

Best Laugh Out Loud Book for 9-13-year-olds

Tom Gates: Epic Adventure (Kind Of) by Liz Pichon


Family frolics with Tom the master doodler! Families can be super-annoying. (Think grumpy sister Delia.) But sometimes families can also be super AMAZING! For example, right now having two sets of grandparents is working out pretty nice for Tom. The Wrinklies are really keen on giving presents. Plus, they’re planning a truly EPIC family outing! (OK: Delia’s coming too, but Tom can always ignore her.) So don’t get left behind. Join Tom and his family on a super-funny journey to laughter!
