    Floris Books have made history by being the first publisher to publish all three shortlisted books in one category at the Scottish Children’s Book Awards.

    The three shortlisted books are:

    •  Black Tide by Caroline Clough

    •  The Accidental Time Traveller by Janis Mackay

    •  Really Weird Removals.com by Daniela Sacerdoti

    All three books, shortlisted in the Young Readers (8—11 years) category,  will now compete for overall category winner. All the books are published in our Kelpies range of Scottish children’s fiction for 8-12 year olds.

    The Scottish Children’s Book Awards, formally the Royal Mail Awards for Scottish Children’s Books, is the largest award of its  kind in Scotland and is run by Scottish Book Trust in partnership with Creative Scotland.

    We are incredibly proud that this is the first time that any publisher has published all three shortlisted books in one category. It is also the most books by a Scottish publisher to have appeared on the Scottish Children’s Book Awards shortlist for any given year.

    The winner of each category is decided by Scottish children themselves, who will be reading the shortlisted books and voting for their favourite over the next seven months. The winners will be announced at a special award ceremony in early March 2014.

    This is a wonderful addition to a great year that has also recently seen us celebrate 10 years of publishing the Kelpies.

    We wish the best of luck to Caroline, Daniela and Janis!
