Scottish Book Awards – report

S3 Book Crusaders trip to The Scottish Book Awards ceremony

Our book group went to Dundee on Thursday 7 March with Mrs Toonen to see the Scottish Children’s Book Award Ceremony at The Caird Hall.

In our sessions leading up to the ceremony, we read and reviewed the shortlisted books and we voted for Barry Hutchison’s ‘The 13th Horseman’ to win in the 12- 16 category.

We enjoyed looking around Dundee and meeting the group from the other Moray school who were also there. The low point was having to wait through the 3-7 and 8-11 categories. The high points, however, were the drama performances during the ceremony, which were brilliant and seeing the authors on stage. Barry Hutchison did win and we were pleased with his well-deserved victory.
