Skullduggery Pleasant | Irish Book of the Decade

The race for Irish Book of the Decade is down to the final ten - and the man with no plan but a skeleton detective, Derek Landy, is in with a fighting chance. In fact he’s favourite!  (I’ve no idea who the actual favourite is - but I do know John Boyne and Derek are in the current top ten!!)

Now I’m not suggesting you don’t vote for another book… say John Boyne’s Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Artemis Fowl or Siobhan Dowd’s Bog Child?

It would be great to see one of the some kids books in contention to pick up the gong.

Voting is open until 27 May - get clicking!! (And then click again. And again.)

This blogasaurus is bunched after the CBI Conference and doing lots of work and not enough sleeping. I’ll be back on Monday for the Bisto Book of the Year announcement and lots more! In the meantime – enjoy the bits and pieces below!

    Ha Brilliant! I was disappointed that Artemis Fowl wasn’t on there, but so delighted that Skulduggery is in the running. I’m off to vote for Derek now.
