Not content with being my favourite book of the year in 2009 *ahem* Patrick Ness has just announced on his site the the second book in The Chaos Walking Trilogy has been awarded the 2009 Costa Children’s Book Award! (Slightly more rewarding than my little acknowledgment I’m sure!)
Judges: “From the first word, we were gripped by this dazzlingly-imagined, morally complex, compulsively-plotted tale. We are convinced that this is a major achievement in the making.”
To see the winners in the four other categories that will battle The Ask and the Answer for the overall title, head on over to the Awards Site.
