The Laugh Out Loud Awards 2017 shortlist has been announced, and we need your votes!

After months of deliberation by our esteemed judges, we’re delighted to announce the shortlist for the Laugh out Loud Awards 2017 (“the Lollies”)! Featuring three separate awards determined by age group, the Lollies were created especially to celebrate the very funniest and most engaging books in children’s fiction.

The shortlist was decided by Michael Rosen, children’s novelist, poet and former Children’s Laureate, and his judging panel, consisting of CBBC presenter Katie Thistleton and The Sunday Times’ Children’s Books Editor, Nicolette Jones.

You can find out more about the twelve books on the shortlist, choose which books you’d like to read for your children, find fun activity sheets and lesson plans, enter competitions, and much more here!

Get started by exploring the options below!

We believe funny books, and their authors and illustrators, are the beating heart of the children’s book world – not only in sales but also in their ability to create lifelong, passionate readers. We’re so excited to be a part of this very necessary and brilliant new set of awards that aims to highlight the funniest books out there.

Voting closes on 8th December, so make sure you read the Lollies books and place your votes before that date. Winners will be announced in January 2018.
