www.literaryawards.com.au- book awards of the world central



In 1987 the Canada Council's Children's Literature Prizes were renamed The Governor General's Literary Awards. Up to four Children's Prize awards can be given each year, one each to an English language writer, a French language writer, an illustrator of an English language book, and an illustrator of a French language book. In 2007, in honour of the Canada Council’s 50th anniversary, the award prize was increased from $15,000 to $25,000. In addition, publishers of winning titles receive $3,000 for the promotion of the prize-winning book. Non-winning finalists each receive $1,000. The panel of judges is appointed by The Canada Council and prizes are presented each year along with the other Governor General's Literary Awards. All books for young people written or illustrated by a Canadian citizen in the previous year are eligible, whether published in Canada or abroad.

French-language finalists

Children’s Literature – Text

Jocelyn Boisvert, Hâvre-aux-Maisons (Quebec), Mort et déterré.
(Soulières éditeur; distributed by Diffusion du livre Mirabel; ISBN 978-2-89607-084-8)

Jocelyn Boisvert takes us inside the head of a zombie whose many captivating escapades give a whole new meaning to the expression “love you to death.” The author skilfully intertwines comedy and tragedy, leading us on an adventure in the afterlife filled with amusing and surprising situations.

Hervé Bouchard, Saguenay (Quebec), Harvey.
(Les Éditions de la Pastèque; distributed by Socadis; ISBN 978-2-922585-67-4)

In this extremely moving story, Hervé Bouchard creates a universe of innocence, poetry and depth. The nuanced settings, the characters and the delicately woven tale conjure a disquieting and fascinating atmosphere. The author takes the risk of surprising us, buoyed by beautifully-written and highly-personal language.

(Éditions Médiaspaul; distributed by Diffusion Prologue; ISBN 978-2-89420-772-7)

Children’s Literature – Text committee: Charlotte Gingras (Morin-Heights, QC), Daniel Marchildon (Penetanguishene, ON), Jean-Michel Schembré (Sainte-Brigitte-de-Laval, QC).

Children’s Literature – Illustration

Philippe Béha, Montreal, Ulysse et Pénélope, text by Louise Portal.
(Éditions Hurtubise HMH; distributed by the publisher; ISBN 978-2-89647-118-8)

A deliciously joyful book. The luminous pictures in orange and blue convey the sun and the sea in this story inspired by Greek mythology. The illustrator succeeds in creating stylized characters in evocative, symbolic compositions.

Gérard DuBois, Saint-Lambert (Quebec), Henri au jardin d’enfants, text by Gérard DuBois.
(Éditions du Seuil; distributed by Diffusion Dimedia; ISBN 978-2-02-098231-3)

This book seems to invite us into a children’s playground; in reality, it carries us much farther, through the book itself and straight into the world of the imagination. Through the images, the illustrator reveals all the astonishing things that can happen with a kiss. An exceptional book in its research and design qualities.

Janice Nadeau, Montreal, Harvey, text by Hervé Bouchard.
(Les Éditions de la Pastèque; distributed by Socadis; ISBN 978-2-922585-67-4)

The theme of death, narrated and illustrated in the mind of a child. The tone of the illustrations matches the text so faithfully that it is hard to believe they were not the creation of a single mind. Almost three stories in one, with three treatments that make for a harmonious whole. The characters are richly drawn, and the humour, sadness and friendship are magnificently expressed.

Pierre Pratt, Montreal, L’étoile de Sarajevo, text by Jacques Pasquet.
(Dominique et compagnie, a division of Éditions Héritage; distributed by Messageries ADP, groupe Sogides; ISBN 978-2-89512-572-3)

The textured treatment and contrasts of the illustrations accurately portray the mood of young Amina as she tells her story. The illustrator has done a wonderful job of rendering the atmospheres of Sarajevo. The enormous, heavy masses of the bombed city evoke sorrow, while the luminous green park at the end of the book is a sign of hope.

Rogé (Roger Girard), Montreal, La vraie histoire de Léo Pointu, text by Rogé.
(Dominique et compagnie, a division of Éditions Héritage; distributed by Messageries ADP, groupe Sogides; ISBN 978-2-89512-660-7 (bound) / 978-2-89512-661-4 (paper))

This visual gem, full of fantasy and rich in colour, is a delight for the eyes. In luminous tones, the illustrator tells an amusing story where tradition is confronted with modern “progress.” Droll, original characters punctuate this story filled with quirky detail and original compositions.


2008 Winners


Children’s Literature - Text

John Ibbitson, Washington (D.C.), formerly of Ottawa and Toronto, The Landing.
(Kids Can Press)
A superbly crafted story, The Landing takes us to the Ontario Muskoka region of the 1930s. As an interpretation of a place and time and a young man’s coming-of-age, it never falters. It is a novel as timeless as the music and the adolescent imagination that lie at its centre.             

Will Ben ever escape the Landing? The hardscrabble farm on the shores of Lake Muskoka can't generate a living, so Ben's Uncle Henry sells goods and gas to cottagers from the dock known as Cooks Landing. It had never been much of a living and since the Depression hit, it's even less. Ben's thinking a lot these days, and it's making him miserable. He's thinking about how unfair it is that his uncle only cares about work. He's thinking about what he really wants to do: play the violin. These days, he's lucky to snatch the odd bit of practice between chores, playing to the chickens in the henhouse. A new job fixing up the grand old cottage on nearby Pine Island seems at first to be just one more thing to keep Ben away from his violin. After he meets the island's owner, Ben changes his mind. Ruth Chapman is a cultured and wealthy woman from New York who introduces Ben to an unfamiliar, liberating world. After Ben plays violin for Ruth and her admiring friends, it only makes him more desperate to flee. Then, during a stormy night on Lake Muskoka, everything changes.

    Sylvie Desrosiers, Longueuil, Quebec, Les trois lieues.
(Les éditions de la courte échelle)
Sylvie Desrosiers has written a profoundly moving story about the difficult relationship between a father and son. The book takes us on an extraordinary adventure in the far North, a place where magic is closely connected to reality. A gentle reflection on courage, forgiveness, life, love and death.

Children’s Literature – Illustration

Stéphane Jorisch, Montreal, The Owl and the Pussycat, text by Edward Lear.
(Kids Can Press)
Light, poetic, playful, imaginative, bizarre and ingenious illustrations match the text superbly. Stéphane Jorisch’s art brings new colour and depth to this well-known poem. Sit down in an armchair with this book and let it transport you into its magical world.

Visions in Poetry is an innovative and award-winning series of classic poems re-interpreted for today's readers by outstanding contemporary artists in distinctively beautiful editions. The sixth Visions in Poetry book is The Owl and the Pussycat, a nonsense poem by Edward Lear, brilliantly illustrated by Stephane Jorisch. The artist's vision begins in a segregated world where different species never mix and everyone hides behind a mask. Against this backdrop an aristocratic owl from Owl Heights and a bohemian pussycat from the other side of the tracks find each other. They escape society's disapproval by sailing in their pea green boat to "the land where the bong-tree grows," a utopia of mismatched creatures living together, their masks doffed for good. Jorisch's playful and fantastic interpretation, inspired in part by Lear's own illustrations as well as the films of Fellini, the art of Miro and The Beatles' Yellow Submarine, is a celebration of love and an exhilarating journey that takes us beyond the quirky charm of this favourite poem.

    Janice Nadeau, Montreal, Ma meilleure amie, text by Gilles Tibo.
(Québec Amérique)
Janice Nadeau uses a quiet, sober approach to illustrate the delicate subject of death. Her brushstroke evokes ashes and dust, and the restrained use of colour imbues Ma meilleure amie with an emotional charge that goes straight to the heart.
