Longlist 2015
So dear Reader, 'The Shadow' is back with musings and news from the 2015 Awards. Longlists announced today for the Carnegie and Greenaway Awards 2015. Now we have to wait until the 17th March for the Shortlists! Really disapointed Alan Gibbons Hate isn't on the Carnegie list, but thrilled that Sarah Crossan is. The Greenaway list looks very interesting. The Something, Goth Girl and the wonderful Shaun Tan made the Longlist cut...must get round to reading Tinder and Shackleton's Journey and The Great War and Dark Satanic Mills and so many more.

Week 5
Dear Reader. Not sure which books we like best, but there is a strong indication of the one we don't like. A real shame Kevin Brooks is normally really good... Handing over the Greenaway books to the Primaries tonight - we'll miss our fix of crayons and fish!

Dear Reader, week 2 is over and we're into the Easter holidays. The VLE forums are up are running so we can still discuss the books from the comfort of our own homes. Comments have been posted on some of the Carnegie and Greenaway books. We love crayons and fish!

Week 1...
Dear Reader Almost at the end of our first week of reading. The group has already doubled in size and there are no books left in the Carnegie box - some have even been read brought back and gone out again! Ms W has just started the web and VLE stuff so we should be able to start using our online forums after our next meeting. Yours, the Shadow.
