Where My Wellies Take Me longlisted for the 2014 CILIP Carnegie Medal

Last week the longlist for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medals revealed that Where My Wellies Take Me is a contender for the much celebrated medal. The shortlists for both the CILIP Carnegie Medal and the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2014 will be announced on Tuesday 18 March, with the winners being announced in June.

This highly-illustrated book – part poetry anthology, part child’s scrapbook – tells the story of Pippa who loves staying with her Aunty Peggy. She loves going for walks, whether it’s sunshiney or cold – long, wandering walks where her wellies take her. Follow Pippa into the beautiful countryside as her day unfolds, and the wildlife, animals and people she encounters are complemented by relevant poems from some of our greatest authors, personally chosen by Clare and Michael Morpurgo. This is a truly lavish project designed to instil a love of language in young children.

Written by Clare & Michael Morpurgo. Illustrated by Olivia Lomenech Gill.
