Katherine Rundell wins Books Are My Bag Readers Award 2023

Katherine Rundell won the 2023 Books Are My Bag Readers Award in the Children’s category with Impossible Creatures (Bloomsbury Childrens). Katherine Rundell said: "It’s such a joy to win this award – especially so as it’s curated by booksellers, and chosen by readers. Booksellers are among my favourite people – they are doctors for the human heart, able to prescribe the right book that will meet our hunger and hope - they can find you exactly the right jokes, the right texture of story, that you are searching for. And to have been voted for by readers is a true honour."

The awards took place at Foyles, Charing Cross Road, London, hosted by broadcaster and presenter Radzi Chinyanganya. The Books Are My Bag Readers Awards celebrate the best books of the year. Booksellers curate shortlists, which then go to a public vote.
