The Fantastic Book Awards organised by Lancashire School Library Service began in 2005. It aims to encourage and enthuse children aged 9 to 11 to read for pleasure and enjoyment, introducing them to a wide range of recently published children's fiction. There are five winning books selected annually by thousands of children.
The awards are developed in partnership with subscribing schools and are held annually. Participating schools are organised into five groups and receive 6 new titles to read, review and vote on during the autumn and spring terms. The books emerging with the highest voting score in each group wins. The winning five authors receive fountain pens and congratulatory letters from the children who have voted them winners.
