Book covers for the three nominations. 

Writing: Freedom by Catherine Johnson (Scholastic)

Illustration: The Suitcase by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros (Nosy Crow)

Translation: The Distance Between Me and the Cherry Tree translated from Italian by Denise Muir, the original author being Paola Peretti (Hot Key Books).

IBBY UK is delighted to announce the nominations for the 2020 Honour List. It is always a very difficult choice and we had, as ever, some wonderful titles to consider. It was very pleasing to have a greater variety and number of translated texts this year than we have had before.

The Honour Books will be on display and certificates award at the IBBY 2020 Congress in Moscow. We will be arranging an event in the UK sometime next year.
