The Laugh out Loud Awards 2017 (the Lollies) were created to celebrate the funniest and most engaging books in children’s fiction.

Jim Smith was revealed as winner of the 6-8 category in the Lollies 2017 with his brilliant Egmont book Future Ratboy and the Invasion of the Nom Noms.

A shortlist of twelve funny books was initially announced after months of deliberation by an esteemed group of judges. The shortlist was decided by Michael Rosen, children’s novelist, poet and former Children’s Laureate, and his judging panel, consisting of CBBC presenter Katie Thistleton and The Sunday Times’ Children’s Books Editor, Nicolette Jones.

Jim Smith says ‘I was over the moon to win a Lollie for my book, ‘Future Ratboy and the invasions of the Nom Noms’. Thank you so much to all the kids that voted for it – this award is for you! (Not really, it’s for me).’
