Young People's Book Prize

We are delighted to announce the shortlist of the 2017 Young People’s Book Prize, which celebrates the best books that communicate science to young people.

These six fantastic books were chosen by a panel of adult judges from entries submitted by publishers. Over the next five months, this shortlist will be judged by over 300 groups of young people across the UK - together they decide the winner.
