We are delighted to announce that Adam Murphy's fabulous CORPSE TALK has been shortlisted for the Blue Peter Award for Best Book with Facts!
Corpse Talk: Season 1 is the first comic book EVER to be shortlisted for the Blue Peter Award for Book with Facts - an extraordinary achievement. We couldn't be more thrilled - it's a testament to Adam's fabulous work proving that the next big thing in history for kids is...interviews with the dead famous!
The Blue Peter Book Awards, which are celebrating their 15th year, ask children to read the shortlisted books and then vote for the two winners.
The shortlist was announced live on today's (Thursday 4 December) Blue Peter by Michael Morpurgo, author of more than 120 children's books, including War Horse, and President of the reading charity Booktrust, which manages the Blue Peter Book Awards.
Approximately 200 children from 10 schools across the UK will read the shortlisted books and vote for their favourites in the 'Best Story' and 'Best Book with Facts' categories. The two winning books will be announced on the Blue Peter programme scheduled for World Book Day on 5 March 2015.
