The Whitbread Children's Book of the Year

Sponsored by Whitbread Breweries, administered by the Booksellers Association of Great Britain and Ireland.

The Whitbread Awards "acknowledge outstanding books of literature not only for the qualities accorded to them by the critics of the day but for popular qualities which make them readable on a wide scale". The Whitbread Children's Book of the Year is open to books for children of seven and up, written by a British author. Before 1996, the award was known as the Children's Novel category of the Whitbread Book of the Year.
