Peters Book of the Year

October 21st, 2015

Announcing the shortlists for Peters Book of the Year 2016.

The shortlists (see below), were compiled by our team of librarians, who read and review every book we take into stock. Across the three categories, Picture Books, Junior Fiction and Teen Fiction you will find their favourite publishing from the last 12 months.

They’ve done their bit – now it’s your chance to get involved! Nurseries, schools and libraries across the UK can shadow the awards over spring term 2016, with the help of teaching resources, posters, bookmarks and certificates (available to download here).

Voting is now open, and closes at 4pm on the 11th March 2016. You can place votes online here.


The winners will be announced at a special ceremony at our Birmingham premises on the 15th March.


We are also offering the shortlisted books to schools and nurseries at 25% discount – place your orders using the Offers page.
