Each year Leicester Libraries runs the Our Best Book competition for year five and six children, in schools across the city.


A long list of 15 titles are discussed, debated and voted on by pupils in participating Leicester schools, to produce a short list of five great books.


The top five books are read and voted on by the children involved, and the winner announced.


The winning book is announced at an awards ceremony in June, and children from the schools involved are invited to come along, celebrate and meet some of the authors. The participating schools each receive the long list and multiple copies of the short list books.
