We're SO excited to announce that two fabulous Little Tiger titles have made it onto this year's Waterstones Children's Book Prize shortlist!

Sam Usher's Can You See Sassoon? is shortlisted in the picture books category, and Andy Robb's Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind finds itself on the teen titles shortlist.

Both authors are thrilled to have been recognised by the Award, with Andy describing reaching the shortlist as "incredibly humbling".

The Waterstones Children's Book Prize was created to reward and champion new and emerging talent in children's writing. Now in its ninth year and with three categories, the prize reflects the breadth of quality in children's books.

James Daunt, Managing Director of Waterstones said: "Within these shortlists are books containing great beauty, humour, intrigue, imagination and important things to say, but most crucially all are fantastically good reads. Their diversity and quality, carrying with them the stamp of excellence as awarded by our expert booksellers, demonstrates that the world of children's books is as exciting and innovative as ever."

We're thrilled to see two such brilliant debut books on the shortlist and can't wait to find out who will win..!
