* The English 4-11 Picture Book Awards sponsored by the journal of the English Association, have gone to (key stage 1) Wash, Scrub, Brush! A book about keeping clean by Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom (Watts) and My Brother Sammy by Becky Edwards and David Armitage, which portrays a child's relationship with his autistic brother (Bloomsbury Children's Books). Key stage 2 awards go to Anne Wilson's Marsha and the Firebird (Zero to Ten) and The Blue and Green Ark: an alphabet for planet Earth (Scholastic), which matches Brian Patten's text with illutrations by artists including Patrick Benson, Jane Ray and, again, David Armitage, in 26 spreads evoking natural wonders.
