Are you a parent?

The Laugh Out Loud Awards 2017 shortlist has been announced, and we need your votes! If you’re a parent, you can vote on behalf of your children – read on to find out more!

After months of deliberation by our esteemed judges, we’re delighted to announce the shortlist for the Laugh out Loud Awards 2017 (“the Lollies”)! Featuring three separate awards determined by age group, the Lollies were created especially to celebrate the very funniest and most engaging books in children’s fiction.

The shortlist was decided by Michael Rosen, children’s novelist, poet and former Children’s Laureate, and his judging panel, consisting of CBBC presenter Katie Thistleton and The Sunday Times’ Children’s Books Editor, Nicolette Jones.

You can find out more about the twelve books on the shortlist here, choose which books you’d like to read for your children, find fun activity sheets to do at home, enter our competition to win a break to Butlin’s, and more!

Voting closes on 8th December, so make sure you read the Lollies books and place your votes before that date. Winners will be announced in January 2018.
