Hampshire Picture Book Awards 2018

Year 1 have once again been taking part in the HPBA.  This Year the books ranged from a lonely dragon trying to fit in to a boy who swallows everything!  The children have shared the books and have produced some lovely English work based on the stories.  They then voted democratically on their favourite title.  And the winner is......

1. The bad Bunnies Magic Show by Mini Grey - 24 votes

2. Tidy by Emily Gravett - 22 votes

3. There is No Dragon in This Story by Lou Carter - 16 votes

4. Danny Mcgee Drinks the Sea by Andy Stanton - 12 votes

As you can see the results were pretty close!  Our votes will be added to those of all participating schools in Hampshire and an overall winner for Hampshire will be announced shortly. Watch this space!


All of these titles are available to borrow from our library and also the public libraries which are free to join.

Hampshire Picture Book Awards

Year 1 have taken part in this years vote for their favourite book of the four shortlisted picture book titles.  They have produced some lovely English written work based on the stories.

Our children voted for 'Hoot Owl' with 29 votes, closely followed by 'The Knight Who Wouldn't Fight' with 28 votes!

Picture 1
From masterful storyteller Sean Taylor and exciting, celebrated graphic artist Jean Jullien, comes the laugh-out-loud tale of Hoot Owl. Hoot Owl is no ordinary owl - oh no! - he's a master of disguise! And he will use his expert camouflage powers to trick his unsuspecting prey into succumbing to him! Tiny animals of the night ... beware! But, somehow, Hoot Owl's prey keeps escaping... Hmmm, perhaps he isn't quite as masterful as he believes. Will he ever succeed in catching himself some dinner? Hilarity, ridiculousness and very bad costume changes abound in this wildly inventive new title.
