This two-minute stop motion video introduces the 18 authors shortlisted for Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2012.
Now in its eighth year, the Waterstones Children's Book Prize was created to champion new and emerging talent in children's writing. For the first time this year the prize has been split into three categories - Picture books, Fiction 5 - 12 and Teen books. The winner of each category received a £2,000 prize, and the overall winner received a total prize of £5,000 - one of the most valuable for children's writing in the UK. In addition, the winning author will see a significant boost in sales, and the promise of ongoing commitment to their writing career from Waterstones branches nationwide.
