The seventh book in author J. K. Rowling’s series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” has won with 2007 Berkshire Children’s Book Award after votes were cast by some 1,000 students across 33 schools in Berkshire county in the UK. GetReading.co.uk is reporting “Deathly Hallows” faced close competition with Derek Landy’s “Skulduggery Pleasant,” which ended up taking second place. Launched in 2004, the Berkshire Children’s Book Award gives pupils from the county the opportunity to nominate and vote for their choice for the best, newly released novel directed towards young people of the year. The sixth novel, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” received top honors at the Berkshire Book Awards in 2005. The 2007 awards ceremony is set to take place this fall.

Many congratulations Jo!

That’s great! All the HP books have won awards now, haven’t they?

Ha! Like that’s any surprise. Our school kept pestering us to go and vote, and when they read out the list of books to us everyone just laughed when they said Deathly Hallows. It was sort of a one horse race. Not much point voting.

I think HP is great, but so is Skullduggery Pleasant – just got book number 2, everyone wants to read it first but it is mine! I would have been happy whichever book won, they are both brilliant reads.

Congratulations, Jo! We know you like awards from children, although all this award stuff is a bit too much sometimes. Seems you win an award each week. Just hope they realize you can’t spend all your (free) time going to award receptions and give speaches. But awards from children is always nice. :)
