NEWS: This is what the Carnegie medal 2016 longlist looks like, incl. Patrick Ness and Sarah Crossan

The Carnegie medal is awarded each year to the writer of an ‘outstanding book for children’. Tanya Landman won the 2015 award with her book ‘Buffalo Soldier’ and this year’s longlist sees perennial favourites (and rightly so!) Patrick Ness and Terry Pratchett nominated once again.

But the Carnegie is notorious for picking a wide range of books, some well known, other less so, but they are all just so bloody damn good.

This is how the longlist looks, and *spoiler alert* it’s looking hella good.
