Scholastic now invites all schools to get involved and vote. Children will decide the ultimate winners in each of the categories by submitting a class vote on the Lollies website, www.scholastic.co.uk/lollies. The winning books will be announced at a gala awards ceremony in London in June.

The Lollies were launched last October as a result of Scholastic’s Kids & Family Reading Report™ (www.scholastic.co.uk/readingreport) which revealed that nearly two thirds of children aged 6-17 say that when choosing books to read for fun, they want “books that make me laugh.”

The Lollies website will be open for voting from February 8th at www.scholastic.co.uk/lollies. Schools can register a class vote for their chosen winner in any, or all of the three categories. Voting closes on the 10th June 2016.
