Award-winning children's writer Frank Cottrell Boyce has been long-listed for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize 2012.
The Unforgotten Coat – the story that Frank wrote exclusively for Our Read 2011, launched by the Reader Organisation – has been listed among many others as a favourite to win this year's award. The judges this year are children's writers Tony Bradman, Cressida Cowell and Kevin Crossley-Holland. The prize will be awarded in November.
The Guardian is on the lookout for children and young people to submit 200 word reviews of the eight longlisted books, including The Unforgotten Coat, so if you know a young person who loved the story, make sure you direct them to the site.
There’s also a brilliant review of the book by Lottie Longshanks on the Guardian website here:
