Blue Peter Book Awards


BBC Tent
The 2016 winners are joined by Blue Peter presenter Lindsey Russell to talk about their work as graphic artist turned author, and what it means to have been voted winners by schoolchildren all over the country. Ross MacKenzie, who is also a graphic designer for a national newspaper, won Best Story with his latest title, The Nowhere Emporium. Schoolchildren said the plot was like “putting pieces into a jigsaw”. Adam Frost, who creates fantastic, wacky information graphics that are often found in his books, won Best Book with Facts for The Epic Book of Epicness – which schoolchildren described as having “funny facts that made your head fizzle”. Come and find out how they did it.
