Award for Derek Landy

Dublin Author Derek Landy, who toured Clare Library branches during Children’s Book Festival 2007, has been chosen as the overall winner of the Red House Children’s Book Award - the only children’s book award voted for by children - for his book Skulduggery Pleasant. Warner Bros own the film rights for Skulduggery Pleasant which is expected to be released in 2010. The second book in the sequel Skulduggery Pleasant: Playing with Fire from the author who has been hailed as the successor to JK Rowling, is proving equally popular among young readers.
