Tricia Adams, Chair of the judging panels for both awards, said: ‘Both longlists are outstanding, showcasing the huge range of storytelling to be found in this vibrant area of publishing (children’s books now make up almost a third of the books sold in the UK each year). The subject matter that emerges from the two lists – stories about refugees, our relationship with the natural world, and living with disability and loss – reflect the very real issues children have to deal with. In turbulent times, we need children’s books to provide a safe space from which to help make sense of the world.’

The 2017 shortlists will be revealed on Thursday 16 March, with the winners to be announced on Monday 19 June.
