Congratulations to the winners of the six major Canadian children's book awards!

$87,500 in prize money was awarded at a gala event in Toronto last night. Each work was chosen because it exemplifies the best in the Canadian author and illustrator community. This year, TD Bank Group, sponsor of the TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award, partnered with CBC Books to present the TD Canadian Children's Literature Fan Choice Award. Young readers chose their favourite book from the shortlisted TD AWARD titles in an online poll. Annaka Leib of Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan, was chosen to fly to Toronto and present the award to Polly Horvath for the TD Canadian Children’s Literature Fan Choice Award for her novel, One Year in Coal Harbour (Groundwood Books).
