This year, Wellington College Belfast’s School Librarian, Ms Tanja Jennings was given the exciting opportunity to represent Northern Ireland on the Carnegie Greenaway judging panel. After much deliberation, as the result of very strong short lists, ‘One’ ( a poignant and powerful verse novel about conjoined twin sisters) by Sarah Crossan and Gaiman’s gloriously gothic retelling of Sleeping Beauty ‘The Sleeper and the Spindle’ (exquisitely illustrated in striking black and white with gold accents) by Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell were declared the worthy winners. The medals were presented on the 20th of June 2016.
