We love rib-ticklingly funny books and we're very very excited to see the shortlist for the 2016 Laugh Out Loud Book Awards (known affectionately as "The Lollies").
Voting is still open for another couple of months so you've got plenty of time to get your kids - and their schools - involved with this brilliant book award.
There's plenty of information available on the Scholastic Lollies Website: https://shop.scholastic.co.uk/lollies but here are some very talented little munchkins to give you a heads up:
The shortlist is broken into several age categories - so here's the list (with some links through to our reviews of these awesome books):
Picture Book Shortlist:
I Need a Wee! by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet (Simon and Schuster)
6-8 Years Shortlist
The Jolley-Rogers and the Cave of Doom by Jonny Duddle (Templar)
9-13 Years Shortlist (which we'll be covering in more detail in an upcoming special Chapter Book roundup!)
Emily Sparkes and the Friendship Fiasco by Ruth Fitzgerald (Little, Brown)
It's a heck of a brilliant list isn't it. Get involved by visiting the Scholastic Lollies Web Page, read some of the titles with your class and school (or even on your own) and vote your socks off!
Catch up with our post on 16th May where we round-up those gorgeous 9-13 Years titles in a more in-depth set of mini reviews but most importantly GET VOTING!
