Storylines: Children’s Literature Foundation of New Zealand Notable New Zealand Books

The list of Notable Books was established in 1999 to reflect the wide-ranging achievements of New Zealand authors and illustrators. The CLFNZ Notable Books list allows for the inclusion of picture books with offshore illustrators as well as anthologies. In 2019 an extra category for books in te reo Māori or bilingual books was added.
