BROCK/PIKE/ROOK with Anthony McGowan

Anthony McGowan’s Rook is shortlisted for the 2018 Carnegie Medal – the most prestigious prize in children’s books. It is the conclusion of a trilogy about the brothers Nicky and Kenny, taking them from the depths of despair and social depravation to the heights of joy and friendship. The books are tragic, funny, and ultimately uplifting. The event is perfect for readers of 12 and older.

Anthony McGowan has written several young adult novels, including Hellbent, HenryTumour, which won the Book Trust Teenage Prize in 2006, and The Knife That Killed Me which was adapted into a highly acclaimed film in 2014. He has written widely for younger children, including the award-winning Donut Diaries series, and Einstein’s Underpants, which was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2010.
