I cheered aloud when I read the Telegraph article about Patrick Ness winning the Red House Children’s Book Award for A Monster Calls.  Even better, this is a dark, wondrous read that won a vote by children for the top place!  Love it!

  

The winners of the other two age categories are:

Scruffy Bear and the Six White Mice by Chris Wormell in the Younger Children category

The Brilliant World of Tom Gates by Liz Pichon in the Young Readers’ category
