Winner of Swedish Radio’s Children Book Award
Hurray for Jenny Jägerfeld, winner of Swedish Radio’s Children Book Award, for her fantastic novel COMEDY QUEEN!
Jury motivation for Best children’s book 2018
“With Comedy Queen, Jenny Jägerfeld brings the reader into a story of grief, loss and friendship. Jenny Jägerfeld makes the reader understand the importance of talking with each other during the toughest times of life. With funny bones and a touching main character Jenny Jägerfeld catches the reader from the very first page.”
The Children Radio Book Award (Barnradions bokpris) is a children’s radio program where the best book of the year for 9-12 year old readers is awarded by a jury consisting of fifth and sixth grade students from Rosengårdsskolan in Malmö. The jurors read the five shortlisted books during the summer break, and last week during the Autumn holiday for school children (in Sweden also referred to as “Reading holiday”) they discussed each book during a program series.
