New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults – Margaret Mahy Book of the Year

Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.

The New Zealand Book of the Year Award is organised and administered by the New Zealand Book Awards Trust. Until 2014 the awards were sponsored by NZ Post. Prior to 1997, the awards were known as the AIM Children’s Book Awards.

In 2013 the New Zealand Post Book of the Year was renamed the New Zealand Post Margaret Mahy Book of the Year award, to commemorate Margaret Mahy who died in 2012.
