It has been a thrilling time for awards nominations and the excitement continues with the announcement of the Alligators Mouth Awards for Highly Illustrated Fiction. This year we are delighted that Adam Stower's King Coo: The Curse of the Mummy’s Gold, published by David Fickling Books is on the long-list for this exciting new award.
The Alligator’s Mouth children’s bookshop and The Bright Agency launched the children’s book prize last year to celebrate the best books for 6-8-year-olds. Ten books have been long-listed for The Alligator’s Mouth Award 2020, which champions both authors and illustrators of highly illustrated children’s fiction.
Books wholesaler Gardners, an official partner of the award for 2020, are offering independent bookshops across the UK a 52.5% discount on all ten longlisted titles throughout March, April and May.
