1. IBBY, Hans Christian Anderson Awards 2012 and Peter Sis

Awards, translations, migrations and a mix of people from 52 countries, were all part of the hectic week-end that comprised the International IBBY Conference hosted by IBBY UK here in London at the end of August.

There were too many absolutely brilliant workshops and talks to identify individually. UK authors and illustrators - Michael Rosen, Marcus Sedgewick, Michael Morourgo, Aiden Chambers and Anthony Browne were there but into the mix came other heady spice, texture and flavour from international experts in children’s literature and luminaries such as Shaun Tan, Peter Sis, Bart Moeyaert and Kitty Crowther, winner of the Astrid Lingen Award for Illustration.

Highlight of the week-end had to be the Hans Christian Andersen Ceremony with the Author award going to María Teresa Andruetto from Argentina and Illustrator award going to Peter Sis from the Czech Republic. I couldn’t help feeling that the venue of the Science Museum at night with its surreal spotlights was the perfect setting for Peter Sis’s drawings. The machines seem to take on a life of their own...

Some of the work of the short-listed illustrators and some IBBY Honour titles are shown below - exciting, unusual, different.  For more events and people see Candy Gourlay’s blog.

The fine linear work of Roger Mello from Brazil who was short-listed...,

The work of Alenka Sottler, an illustrator from Slovenia, depicting the story of Cinderella - Pepelka - with almost Seurat-like pointillism.

In Piroulito and Rosalia Effie Lada from Greece has speech impaired characters wearing beautiful masks and Eg Kan Ikkje Sove No (I Can't Sleep Now) shows the wonderful silhouetted work of Oyvind Torsetter from Norway... and lots more, snapped at random.

And finally I was delighted to meet Australian author, Mark Greenwood and his illustrator wife, Frane Lessac from Freemantle...
delighted to have Peter Sis sign my books...
and delighted to be in the heady atmosphere of such creative energy. Thank you IBBY UK for playing such excellent hosts.

winner of two IBBY Honour Books (1994 and 2004)

Peter Sis won the Hans Christian Andersen Award! for best illustrator in 2012.  Congratulations, Mr. Sis!  The best thing about the Hans Christian Andersen Award is that the award includes authors and illustrators from around the world.  This award is presented each year by the International Board on Books for Young People.  Winning is a huge honor. 

The 2012 Han Christian Andersen Award winner for writing is Maria Teresa Andruetto from Argentina.   Andruetto won this award not only because of her novels for young people but also for her work promoting literacy among children and teens.

So one of today's Kids Book Websites is IBBY - The International Board on Books for Young People.

Check back in an hour or two for another Kids Book Website and a book review.  This post should stand alone.
