Congratulations to poet Joseph Coelho and illustrator Kate Milner on the news that 'The Girl Who Became a Tree' is on the shortlist for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2021, and was also longlisted for the CILIP Greenaway Medal 2021 – a huge tribute to the combined talents of both, first seen in Joseph's 2017 collection 'Overheard in a Tower Block'.

Now it has won an international honour, with a Special Mention awarded by the jury of the Bologna Children's Book Fair 2021 Poetry Prize.
