Guardian Children's Fiction Prize: Longlist

Julia Eccleshare has announced the eight longlisted titles for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. This is an award I follow with great interest, because they always choose interesting titles. I just print out the longlist and know what I want to order or look for. For example, Mal Peet's acclaimed The Penalty is there, as is Charlie Fletcher's Stoneheart. This is an awards process to follow.
