WHITBREAD AWARD 
FOR 
CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE YEAR
1972-2003

The Whitbread Award for children's literature has undergone some name changes since the award was initiated in 1972. First, the winning book was designated as a "Children's Book," then as "Children's Novel," and  since 1996,  the "Children's Book of the Year."  The aim of the Whitbread Book Awards is "to celebrate and promote the best of contemporary British Writing."
