In September the Guardian published the 100 books of the 21st Century. It contained only five children’s books, two of which were published in the year 2000 – wrong century – and featured ZERO picture books. Outrage! I was spurred to action and rallied the troops on Twitter. Over 1000 votes and 600 nominated books later and I had what felt like a pretty representative list of the vast range of incredible children’s books published since 2001.
