The 2014 CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children's Book Awards shortlists

The Carnegie Medal and the Kate Greenaway Medal are children's book awards presented by the CILIP, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals in the United Kingdom.  Shortlists and winners are selected by librarians who serve young readers.

To be eligible for the 2014 Awards titles must have been first published in the UK between 1 September 1, 2012 and August 31,  2013.  Books first published in another country must have been co-published in the UK within three months of the original publication date.

The winning titles will be announced at an awards ceremony on June 23, 2014 on their website here.

This year, there are no Canadian authors' books on the shortlist for the 2014 CILIP Carnegie Medal for the writer of an outstanding book for children.

However, among the seven nominated illustrators shortlisted for the 2014 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal, two feature Canadian-born illustrator, Jon Klassen. (I have only posted covers of these two.)
