Discover the shortlist

The Lollies 2017 vote is now closed and the winners will be announced at the award ceremony on 18th January. You can still browse the shortlist and look out for the Lollies 2018 launching later in January.

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, sorted by age category – there are four books in each category. Buy the books by clicking the links below and start smiling all summer long!
