There have been a plethora of Awards announcing their short-lists/long-lists in the past month and here at Penguin Teachers’ Corner, we would like to take a moment to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS to our authors and illustrators on their list success.

The YABBA awards are a children’s choice book award in 4 sections, presented annually.
Each year children nominate Australian children’s fiction books that have been published in the last ten years to create a short list. Children then read books from the YABBA short list and vote for their favourite books by a specified date in October. The winners are announced at an award ceremony where authors and illustrators receive YABBA citations presented by children.
