***Winner of the 2020 Carnegie Medal***
Lark by Antony McGowan was the winner of the 2020 Carnegie Medal, the UK’s most prestigious children’s book prize. It’s the fourth book about two brothers, Nicky and Kenny, but was described by the chair of the judges, Julia Hale, as a “standalone masterpiece”. The book was published by Barrington Stoke, a publisher that focuses on kids with dyslexia or who find reading a bit tougher. More details are available here.
