About the prize
Each year the Royal Society celebrates the best books that communicate science to young people through our Young People's Book Prize.
The Prize aims to inspire young people to read about science and promotes the writing of excellent, accessible books for under-14s.
A panel of expert adult judges chooses a shortlist of six books, announced each May, before the winner is chosen by groups of young people in Judging Panels across the UK.
See all past winning and shortlisted titles and all past judges.
