We’re delighted to hear that Emily Critchley’s Notes On My Family has been longlisted for the Branford Boase Award. Very proud and in fantastic company.
‘It is the eighteenth year of the Branford Boase Award, yet every longlist has brought books that surprise us, and this year has been no exception: here are a wealth of original stories, new viewpoints, and settings that take us from ancient Japan to the island of Lewis. UK children’s literature is as exciting as it’s ever been, and we were particularly pleased to have submissions this year from so many different publishers.’
