The People Awards by Lily Murray, illustrated by Ana Albero


Roll out the red carpet and get set to explore the amazing achievements of people who have pursued their passions, pushed boundaries and changed the world. Find out who’s won The Brilliant Idea Awards, The Trailblazer Awards, The Creative Awards and many others, including my personal favourite, The One Voice Award.

Celebrating the achievements of 50 inspirational people from the world of science, sport, music and literature, trailblazers and activists, The People Awards is a wonderful collection of biographies covering a diverse and eclectic mix of the best humanity has to offer.

A fabulous non-fiction browser packed with short biographies, amazing facts and stunning illustrations in a layout that is eye catching, engaging and easy to follow. It is bound to spark curiosity and further research. I especially loved The Lap Of Honour at the end of the book, showing each recipient’s place in history.


Whether you’re exploring fossils, World War II, explorers, famous artists or Ancient Egypt this is a must for classrooms. It’s great to dip into for information on specific people, whether to spark interest as a starting point to explore a notable person from a topic, or as a fun non-fiction text for reading lessons.

Huge thanks to ReadingZone and The Quarto Group for sending me a copy for review.
