Planning for Christmas and an exciting 2012

With Christmas coming up, it´s not easy to avoid all top lists for children’s books. Have a look at Amazon, Childrens Book Guide, Guardian and The Telegraph, for instance. The Guardian even has an interactive advent calendar for children’s books, a funny and brilliant idea for Christmas count down…!

This year’s award recipient Shaun Tan appears frequently on the top lists in Swedish National newspapers, along with the works of the 2010 recipient Kitty Crowther. For all readers who know Swedish, we suggest that you check out Svenska Dagbladet and Dagens Nyheter.

But don´t think that the award office has already started the Christmas holidays. No, far from it. We´re all working very hard preparing for a very interesting 2012, when the award is celebrating the 10th anniversary. A whole decade has gone by since Astrid Lindgren passed away and the Swedish government founded the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. More information about the jubilee is coming up later on. Have patience!
