The very deserving winner of both the 2012 Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medal is A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and illustrated by Jim Kay. Patrick Ness is one of my all-time favourite authors and I absolutely LOVED A Monster Calls. It’s a beautiful, heart-breaking story and was probably my favourite book of 2011.
If you haven’t already read A Monster Calls or you loved it and want to own a copy you can win one of 2 copies that I’m giving away. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me your favourite childrens or young adults book. Competition closes Friday 22 June (International).
