The 18-strong shortlists for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2017 [see below for full listings] show a strong presence from independent Chicken House as well as publishers Hachette and Penguin Random House.

Waterstones Children’s Book Prize shortlists offer 'optimism in uncertain times'

The selected titles have been described as a “guiding light of optimism in the face of uncertain times” by Waterstones, although gritty topics covered include the refugee crisis, injustice and loss. The Journey by Francesca Sanna explores a child’s perspective of one family’s flight from war while Nicola Yoon’s The Sun is also a Star features a couple who face separation by deportation. But on the more upbeat side, Peter Bunzl's steam-punk Victorian adventure story Cogheart features the headstrong, intelligent 13-year-old Lily who is determined to discover the truth after her father vanishes in a Zeppelin crash.

Review Love From Boy, in all its cunning unreliability, becomes more fascinating the more you think about it.

Love from Boy: Roald Dahl's Letters to his Mother: Amazon.co.uk: Donald Sturrock: 9781444786279: Books

It is a work of showmanship, written for someone to whom the author would always be a child. As the backdrop to one of the world's greatest children's writers, it's so wonderfully complicated you'd have thought even Dahl couldn't have made it up. Except that he did (Daily Telegraph) Sturrock's carefully chosen letters, complemented by a judicious selection of biographical and photographic material, testify to a bond between mother and son that is unbreakable, even in the face of boarding school, war and sexual jokes about Hitler (The Times, Book of the Week) Sturrock is right to claim that the letters to his mother show, in embryo, essential features of Dahl's art, such as his fantastical imagination and his sadistic sense of humour (Sunday Times)

At the age of 21 he scored 365 not out playing for the West Indies against Pakistan, which remains one of the great totems of sporting achievement--despite finally being surpassed in 1994, after 36 years, and he went on to establish himself as one of the most entertaining and successful all-rounders of all time--a phenomenal left-handed batsman who racked up a Test average approaching 60, in a career that spanned 20 years, and a multi-styled bowler who took over a thousand first-class wickets. Fortunately for British cricket fans, Sir Garry toured extensively as West Indies captain and played a substantial portion of his county-level cricket at Nottinghamshire, where he set another celebrated record--first man to hit six sixes in an over.
