What a fantastic day, although Crocodiles are the best Animals of All didn't win I felt elated watching the video of Lonesome Primary School pupils talk about their favourite books. I also enjoyed all the frantic signing at the end. The book trust and the Roald Dahl Foundation and not least the judges with the hilarious Bill Bailey and Michael Rosen put on a wonderful event. Everyone was in stitches, the banter and laughter was infectious.

I feel proud to have been shortlisted.
