“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” Voted Children’s Book of the Year
J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was voted Children’s Book of the Year.
The Naked Chef last night joined forces with Harry Potter and Archie Jones, the nowhere man of Zadie Smith’s version of Cricklewood Broadway, by taking three of the first W.H. Smith book prizes to be chosen by popular vote.
The books won awards worth £5,000 for their authors—Jamie Oliver, J.K. Rowling, and Ms. Smith—after coming top in a poll which attracted 65,000 votes in high streets and on the internet.
Ms. Rowling won the Children’s Book of the Year Award for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; Ms. Smith took the New Talent Prize for White Teeth, and Jamie Oliver the Home and Leisure Prize for The Return of the Naked Chef. Ms. Binchy won the Fiction Prize for her novel, Scarlet Feather.
This is great news! Congratulations, Joanne!
