The Laugh Out Loud Awards 2017 are designed to celebrate the very funniest books in the world of children’s fiction and today, we’re very excited to be celebrating the shortlist announcement!
Having taken place for the first time last year, Scholastic set up the Lollies because they believe funny books, and their authors and illustrators, are the beating heart of the children’s book world. There’s nothing quite like a funny book for creating lifelong, passionate readers.
The shortlist, which you can read for the first time below, features the Lollies judges’ twelve funniest reads, ranging from picture books up to books for 9-13 years. But now it’s where you come in – because the winners of the Lollies are decided entirely by teachers, parents and children. To start reading and voting for your favourites, go to www.scholastic.co.uk/lollies, and find out which books made the shortlist below!
