The James Reckitt Hull Children’s Book Awards are aimed at fostering a love of reading by introducing young people to new writers and titles they might not normally pick up. There are 3 separate categories EYFS/KS1 Picture Book Award, KS2 Award and KS3 Award.
Rita Jeffries is two years old, alone and on the run! She may be a toddler, but she has the mind (and attitude) of a teenager. She knows something's not right, but she's still surprised when her parents disappear and a sinister clown and an ice-cream van seem to be hunting her down... It will take all Rita's cunning and resourcefulness, as well as a cat flap, a mobility scooter and a reluctant teenage sidekick, to defeat an evil conspiracy and a crazy genius villain.
