The Laugh Out Loud Book Awards 2017

The Lollies are back for 2017! We’re excited to announce that the Laugh out Loud Awards, celebrating the best funny books in children’s literature, is returning for its second year.

Once again, the Laugh Out Loud Book prize (the ‘Lollies’) will be awarded in three categories:

  • Best Laugh Out Loud Picture Book
  • Best Laugh Out Loud Book for 6-8s
  • Best Laugh Out Loud Book for 9-13s

A judging panel will select the four books to make up the shortlist in each category, but winners will be decided entirely by children’s votes – with voting taking place via this very website and promoted through Scholastic Book Clubs and Book Fairs.

The submission process is now open until Tuesday 31st January – if you’re a publisher and would like to submit your books for the Lollies, you can find all the information you need in the terms and conditions document and the entry form below. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to get in touch at

We believe funny books, and their authors and illustrators, are the beating heart of the children’s book world – not only in sales but also in their ability to create lifelong, passionate readers. We’re so excited to be a part of this very necessary and brilliant new set of awards that aims to highlight the funniest books out there.
