The 2020 shortlist has just been announced. The Little Rebels Award celebrates children’s fiction which challenges stereotypes, promotes social justice and advocates for a more peaceful and fairer world. The titles on this year’s shortlist explore community empowerment, wastefulness and sustainability, consumerism, racism and untaught histories, domestic violence and the asylum and immigration system, the varied expressions of love, and why isolation isn’t always the best thing for little islands.
The Little Rebels’ Children’s Book Award is a radical fiction award for readers aged 0-12 years old. The award is given by the Alliance of Radical Booksellers – motto: Changing the world, one book at a time. It is administered by Letterbox Library.
