Jake Hope, Chair of the judging panels for both awards, said: ‘Regardless of tastes or interests, this year’s longlists offer something for everyone, from established winners to exciting debuts, from fiction based in the past, to stories of the present and those in possible futures, from real life to fantasy, from factual books about the world around us, to richly imagined representations of the emotions and experiences that are familiar to children and young people in their everyday. This year’s list continues the exhilarating tradition of the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals in showcasing the vibrancy and range of form and style in contemporary children’s literature, with mind-blowing writing and eye-popping illustrations.’
