Children's Award winner
The winner of the 2015-16 Award is Kerr Thomson for his
book The Sound of Whales. We hope that Kerr will come to Waverton and Capenhurst, to talk to the
children who voted for him, later this year.

BOOK LISTS. Copies of the short-listed books are now available in the

each box for you to sign out each book that you borrow.
