“You’re called What?!” written  by Kes Gray and illustrated by Nikki Dyson.

5871 pupils from 122 Schools, across Hampshire took part in the award and spent the spring term reading and sharing the four books on the shortlist.

The books chosen for the shortlist were ones that were outstanding picture books with exciting stories that have great style and stretched the children’s imagination, feelings and vocabulary.
