D-Day Dog is the Overall Winner of the Children’s Book Award for 2020
D-Day Dog, written by Tom Palmer and published by Barrington Stoke, was revealed as the Overall Winner of the CBA for 2020 in an online ceremony on 10th October. It also won the Confident Readers category.
The other category winners were:

Books for Younger Readers : Mutant Zombies Cursed My School Trip, written by Matt Brown and illustrated by Paco Sordo, published by Usborne

We are hugely grateful for the financial support of the Ragdoll Foundation and the Jean Russell Gift to produce the ceremony video, which has enabled us to reach a whole new audience outside the FCBG.
The ceremony is still available to view here. As well as the announcement of the winners, hosts Sarah McIntyre and Philip Reeve also share an exclusive story about Kevin the roly-poly flying pony – written especially for the occasion! – and Sarah shares a drawing masterclass.
