Vote for your favourite book in the 2010 Western Australia Young Reader’s Book Award (WAYRBA).  WAYRBA is a readers’ choice award, organised on a statewide basis for young readers. This year the award has three categories: Picture Books, Younger Readers and Older Readers. All listed books have been selected based on the nominations received, over the the past 12 months, by WA young readers.

Read any of the books on the list and tell us whether they were terrific, good, okay or awful. Vote now by completing an online voting slip. (The links below go directly to library catalogue. NB If a link doesn’t show the book it means the library doesn’t have a copy at the moment, so fill in an inter-library loan request form and the library will attempt to get in a copy from another library for you).
