So you're probably wondering what the LOLLIES are. Well as much as we like an ice cold lolly on a hot day like today, these are more the laughing kind than the lickable ones we know! The LOLLIES are The Laugh Out Loud Book Awards 2016! A panel of 'Laugh detecting' judges have chosen their shortlist and now it’s over to YOU and your class to vote for your favourites.
Votes must be submitted by teachers on behalf of a class, so get reading, discussing and register your class to vote! Voting closes on 10th June and winners will be announced on 21st June at The Lyric Theatre in the West End. (If your class isn’t registered ask your teacher if you can join in!) So teachers of Great Britain get over to scholastic.co.uk/lollies to cast your votes now!
To help with the very hard task of selecting a winner (and it is very tough from the great shortlist), I have been reading and re-reading this year’s nominated picture books. And what a funny bunch they are too! Take a look at the fine selection below, followed by my opinion on which one I think should bag the prize!
