Hans Christian Andersen Award

From Academic Kids

The Hans Christian Andersen Award, sometimes known as the Little Nobel Prize, is an international award given bianually by the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) in recognition of a "lasting contribution to children's literature". There are two categories of award winners: authors, and illustrators. The prize is named after the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, and winners receive a gold medal from the hand of the Queen of Denmark.

In addition to the Award, IBBY publishes a biennual "Honor List" of excellent new children's books, which are selected by the different national sections of IBBY, and recognize excellence in writing, illustration and translation of children's books.
