Peck, Peck, Peck and Timmy Failure are big winners at the Kindle Booktrust Awards

We couldn't be happier that the beautiful, bold and bouncy Peck, Peck, Peck by Lucy Cousins and hilarious Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, have won in the Kindle Booktrust Best Book Awards!

12,000 schoolchildren nationwide voted for the winning titles to produce a host of superb winners crossing six categories. 


Booktrust CEO, Viv Bird said: "What's unique about the new Booktrust Best Book Awards is that children choose the winners themselves." 

Peck, Peck, Peck  by Lucy Cousins won the award for the best picture book for children aged five and under which recognises the most engaging books for the youngest readers, taking into account the quality of both writing and illustration. Lucy Cousins was there to accept her award in person, and it came as a complete surprise to her! 


Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made by Stephan Pastis won the Best Story Book award for children aged 6-8. Stephan Pastis couldn't be there but sent a video message to accept his prize.
