We are thrilled to share the celebratory news of Katie Kirby‘s book, The Completely Chaotic Christmas of Lottie Brooks for the Children’s Fiction Book of the Year category at The British Book Awards 2024!

The Bookseller commented that the book “cemented this hilarious and relatable tween series as a firm favourite for readers”, highlighting the four sold-out signing events organised by Puffin and the engaging social media posts with fans.

Published in October 2023, The Completely Chaotic Christmas of Lottie Brooks narrates a slightly different Christmas this year with the whole Brooks family visiting for the festive break (along with some surprise visitors…), a Secret Santa to organise, and the hammies won’t stop attacking Gavin, the Elf on the Shelf!

It is shortlisted alongside five other Children’s titles published in 2023. See the full list here.

Congratulations Katie on this achievement!
