Carnegie & Greenaway Medal Awards 2017

“2017 is the 80th Anniversary of the Carnegie Medal Awards which is awarded annually by CILIP for an outstanding book for children and young people. It is also the 60th Anniversary of the Kate Greenaway Medal Awards, which is awarded for an outstanding book in terms of illustration for children and young people. To celebrate this prestigious anniversary the medals teams are holding an online celebration with competitions, blogs and plenty of opportunity for children to Tweet about books.

Bury Libraries will be celebrating both these anniversaries by having amazing displays showing all the books in both shortlists, bookmarks and postcards giving everyone the opportunity to tweet their favourite library book to the team at CILIP using #bestchildrensbook and #CKG17

The shortlists have been announced this March and the medal winners will be announced at a ceremony on 19th June.

Shortlists for this year’s Carnegie Medal and Kate Greenaway Medal awards are:

Carnegie Medal Awards Shortlist

Sputnik's Guide to Life on Earth by Frank Cottrell-Boyce
(8+)
The Blythes live on a small farm and sometimes foster children. Now Prez has come to live with them. But, though he seems cheerful and helpful, he never says a word. Then one day Prez answers the door to a small, loud stranger carrying a backpack who goes by the name of Sputnik. The family pat Sputnik on the head, call him a good boy and it seems they all think Sputnik is a dog. It turns out that Sputnik is writing a guidebook to Earth called Ten Things Worth Doing on Earth, and he takes Prez on a journey to find them.

The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon
(11+)
Born in a refugee camp, all Subhi knows of the world is that he's at least 19 fence diamonds high, the nice Jackets never stay long, and at night he dreams that the sea finds its way to his tent, bringing with it unusual treasures. And one day it brings him Jimmie. Carrying a notebook that she's unable to read and wearing a sparrow made out of bone around her neck Jimmie strikes up an unlikely friendship with Subhi beyond the fence. As he reads aloud the tale of how Jimmie's family came to be, both children discover the importance of their own stories in writing their futures.

The Smell of Other People's Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock
(13+)
A tapestry of four rites of passage stories told across four different seasons against the backdrop of Alaskan life and landscapes. Ruth, Dora, Alyce and Hank each have their own concerns and anxieties to contend with in their home lives. As their stories and characters develop, they begin to discover parallels and interconnections in the stories and secrets they hold.
http://library.bury.gov.uk/search/searchtype=X&searcharg=The+Smell+of+Other+People%27s+Houses+

The Stars at Oktober Bend by Glenda Millard
(12+)
Alice is fifteen, with hair as red as fire and skin as pale as bone, but something inside her is broken. She has a brain injury, the result of an assault. Manny was once a child soldier. He is sixteen and has lost all his family. When Manny first sees Alice, she is sitting on the rusty roof of her river house, looking like a carving on an old-fashioned ship, sailing through the stars. He has a poem in his pocket and he knows the words by heart. And he is sure that girl has written them. When Manny and Alice meet they find the beginnings of love and healing.

Beck by Mal Peet with Meg Rosoff
(16+) Advisory Notice of Content - this story is based on the true events of Beck’s childhood and in some parts of the book the story is unflinchingly told and hard to read.
Alternating between brutality and passion, Beck is an utterly compelling historical bildungsroman that tells a story of survival, hardship romance and a fight against inequality. Betrayed by those that should have nurtured him, Beck begins a life of servitude. Finding eventual escape, he journeys for freedom and a place where he can belong, encountering trials and prejudice along the way.

Railhead by Philip Reeve
(12+)
The Great Network is a strange and wonderful world, crisscrossed by sentient trains, travelling across galaxies. It is also a place with great danger - especially for the leading character Zen - a petty thief who steals more than he expects one day, setting him on a dangerous and thrilling journey. But is it Zen or what he has stolen that is also a key to the whole basis of the Great Network, why is he being chased by so many very important people from the authorities and who will be his ally along the way?

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
(13+)
It's early 1945 and a group of people trek across Germany, bound together by their desperation to reach the ship that can take them away from the war-ravaged land. Four young people, each haunted by their own dark secret, narrate their unforgettable stories. This inspirational novel is based on a true story from the Second World War. When the German ship the Wilhelm Gustloff was sunk in port in early 1945 it had over 9000 civilian refugees, including children, on board. Nearly all were drowned. Sepetys brilliantly imagines their story.

Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk
(10+)
Set in Western Pennsylvania in 1943, in a quiet community where everyone knows, or thinks they do, everyone else. Annabelle's life is turned inside out when cruel and manipulative Betty arrives to live with her grandparents. Betty has a formidable array of means for creating unpleasantness. But, then she suddenly disappears and the suspicion for that disappearance falls on Toby, a quiet, odd character who lives on the edge of Wolf Hollow.

Kate Greenaway Medal Awards Shortlist

Wild Animals of the North illustrated by Dieter Braun
(5+)
From the polar bears of the Arctic to the North American pumas and pandas in Asia, Wild Animals of the North takes children on an exciting journey of discovery. The stunning and accurate drawings show these animals in all their natural majesty and the witty and charming descriptions will teach children all about their new favourite animals.

Tidy illustrated by Emily Gravett
(3+)
A very funny rhyming woodland story about the perils of being too tidy. Pete the badger likes everything to be neat and tidy at all times, but what starts as the collecting of one fallen leaf escalates quickly and ends with the complete destruction of the forest! Pete eventually realises the error of his ways and must begin to put everything back.

Wolves of Currumpaw illustrated by William Grill
(7+)
This is a re-telling of a short story from a collection first published in 1898. Set in the plains of New Mexico this follows the story of a notorious wolf pack and the man hired to trap the pack's leader. It is a tale of how the hunter's life was changed and how this led to the establishment of wildlife conservation societies across America.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone illustrated by Jim Kay
(7+)
A full-colour illustrated hardback edition of the nation's favourite children's book - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Brimming with rich detail and humour that perfectly complements J.K. Rowling's timeless classic, Jim Kay's glorious illustrations will captivate fans and new readers alike.

A Great Big Cuddle illustrated by Chris Riddell
(3+)
A new collection of poems from Michael Rosen that delight with rhythm, noise and energy. This is a book for the very young, but one which their adults will enjoy sharing with them again and again.
http://library.bury.gov.uk/search/?searchtype=t&searcharg=A+Great+Big+Cuddle+

The Journey illustrated by Francesca Sanna
(8+)
With haunting echoes of the current refugee crisis this beautifully illustrated book explores the unimaginable decisions made as a family leave their home and everything they know to escape the turmoil and tragedy brought by war.

The Marvels illustrated by Brian Selznick
(10+)
The story cleverly combines that of the Marvels - a theatrical dynasty from the 1700s whose grandfather Billy was ship-wrecked - with a more contemporary tale of Joseph who has run away from boarding schools. This is a story of relationships and connections told through the piecing together of different media that embraces pictures, letters, newspaper reporting and story.

Survivors: Extraordinary Tales From the Wild and Beyond by David Long
Illustrated by Kerry Hyndman
Faber and Faber

For as long as people have looked for adventure, some have also found danger… And here are the stories of survival, gloriously written by David Long and sublimely illustrated by Kerry Hyndman: from Juliane Koepcke, the 17-year-old girl who fell from the sky in Peru as the only survivor of a plane crash above the rainforest, to Aron Ralston, who cut off his own arm after being trapped by a fallen boulder in a canyon in Colorado USA (inspiring the movie 127 Hours).

An anthology to inspire and help children understand how far self-belief and guts took these adventurers, and to wonder how far these qualities could take them, too.

Display of First World War soldiers letters at Radcliffe Library

Copies of letters sent by soldiers to Close Methodist Church during the First World War are on display at Radcliffe Library.

The letters express their gratitude for parcels and correspondence sent to them by the congregation.

These are just a few examples of more than 100 letters that have been donated to the borough’s archive service.

The documents are copies in order to protect the originals, and there are transcriptions of all the letters as some of the handwriting is hard to read.

More of the letters will displayed in future months: for more information, go to

A little tipple enjoyed by all! Adding sparkle to your Christmas dinner

Visitors to Tottington Library enjoyed a wine tasting masterclass designed to put some sparkle into Christmas dinner.

The library held a demonstration by the Vineyard wine shop in Ramsbottom, going through different varieties for different courses: starting with the fizz, learning the difference between frizzante (semi-sparkling) and spumante (sparkling); red and white wines for the turkey; and port with the cheese platter.

More wine (and maybe cocktail) tasting events are being arranged at local libraries in 2017 – stay tuned for details.

New Teen Book for January 2017

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Fans of the ‘Divergent Trilogy’ will revel in bestselling author Veronica Roth’s stunning new science-fiction fantasy series ‘Carve the Mark’.

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favoured by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future.

While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not – their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power – something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.

Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive – no matter what the cost.

When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive – or to destroy one another.

‘Carve the Mark’ is due to be released for sale on Tuesday 17th January 2017.

If you would like to borrow this book from one of our libraries, please either visit your local library or visit our library catalogue to reserve a copy http://library.bury.gov.uk/search/ towards the end of January.
