This August, we held our first Usborne Academy week, an opportunity for people currently under-represented in publishing to spend a week at Usborne.
Geraldine McCaughrean won the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2018 for Where the World Ends, exactly 30 years after she first won this prestigious children's literature prize. In her winning speech she calls for children to be challenged by words as well as issues in the books they read.
Usborne Children's Books are proud to support the new Children's Laureate, Lauren Child. The new 2017–2019 award is sponsored by Waterstones, while Usborne join a number of publishers in supporting the award.
