Shadowing the Carnegie Award is an annual reading event around the country. The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book written in English for children and young people. At Fyling Hall the Learning Support Department shadows the books, and reviews them over biscuits. The shadowing team will meet every Tuesday break time between now and the middle of June to discuss the books and to swap them too. Everyone is welcome to read with us and send us the reviews to be put on the shadowing website.

The books on the short list are: Salt to the Sea, Railhead, Wolf Hollow, The Bone Sparrow, The Stars at Oktober Bend, Beck, The Smell of Other People’s Houses and Sputnik’s Guide to Life on Earth.
