Maggot wins

Sally Gardner

Yippee! Sally Gardner has won the children’s Costa award for Maggot Moon. I had a look at the shortlist last night, just to remind myself of what might happen. And I have to admit I felt this was the only sensible outcome (no disrespect to the other books or their authors intended).

Maggot Moon isn’t only on my 2012 list of top books, but is just wonderful. It just is.

And if by some inexplicable fluke you haven’t already read Sally’s book, what a treat you have in store!
