Ever since I joined my Carnegie Book Club in November, last year, my book reviews are all in the Carnegie Long-List or Short-List. I did write what the Carnegie Medal was in my TimeRiders report, but that was when the book reviews were in chronological order and not sorted into genre. So, I thought that I would write basically about what it is! For the original website, click here.
Basically, every year, the medal is awarded to the best children’s book. It is judged by a series of judges, who read EVERY SINGLE BOOK! No exception. They then choose the book by:
- Character involvement
- Plot originality
- Suitability for children
