Congratulations to CHS Visitor Chris Riddell for Children's Book Award

Everyone at CHS is delighted to congratulate author Chris Riddell, who visited us back in September to talk to our Y4-6 children, for winning the 2013 Costa Children’s Book Award for Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse this week.  The award recognises ‘the most enjoyable books’ published last year in the UK and Ireland across five categories – Novel, First Novel, Biography, Poetry and Children’s Book – and Goth Girl will now go forward to be judged against the other category winners for the overall Book of the Year, to be revealed on 28 January 2014.

Mr Riddell’s visit to Clifton High was very popular and the wonderful Goth Girl illustration that he drew as part of his talk will soon be taking pride of place in a frame on the wall in the Library. Make sure you look after those signed copies!
