From The Bookshelf // Laugh Out Loud Book Awards {Picture Books}

August 27, 2018

The Laugh Out Loud Book Awards – affectionately known as the Lollies – is a celebration of the very best and funniest books for children, voted for by children themselves!

The award was set up by Scholastic UK in 2016 and is supported by BookTrust and Michael Rosen. They hope – along with the help of schools, teachers and parents – to draw attention to funny books to encourage kids to get reading and to enjoy it too!

Publishers submit their funniest children’s books of the previous year to be nominated for the award and a panel of judges is chosen to help whittle down this long list of Lollies entries.

Laugh Out Loud Book Awards {Picture Books}

Mr Bunny’s chocolate factory

Go behind the scenes of Mr Bunny’s chocolate factory! An irresistible look at the workings of Mr Bunny’s chocolate factory! Packed with cross-over humour to amuse kids and big kids too with artwork full of details for poring over time and time again.

The Squirrels Who Squabbled

Greedy squirrels Cyril and Bruce both have their sights on a very special prize: THE VERY LAST NUT OF THE SEASON! As the nut bounces crazily through the forest, the squirrels’ race after it, between the trees, over boulders, down the river and – ARGH! – right to the edge of a waterfall! Working together might be the only way to save themselves now.

Oi Cat!

A brilliant rhyming read-aloud text, jam-packed with animals and silliness – perfect for children and parents alike.

According to Frog …
Cats sit on gnats,
Dogs sit on logs,
Armadillos sit on pillows and
Chicks sit on bricks.

But wait! Cat doesn’t like sitting on gnats, they keep biting his bottom!
Will Frog and Dog help him change the rules?

I Can Only Draw Worms

This book is about worms. (I can only draw worms.)

A book that’s all about worms might sound a little odd, but in fact, it’s absolutely hilarious and is guaranteed to have children howling with laughter.
