About this list
Add to GoodReads. The Phoenix Award is an award made by The Children's Literature Association that honors a book deserving special recognition for its high literary quality and is awarded to a book published 20 years earlier. The award encourages publishers to continue to make such books available and to suggest to readers that they hold dear those traits that have given such books universality and timelessness. This new volume covers the year to and contains the papers presented on the award-winning books, as well as the honor books for each year. Information is provided about each author, including a list of his or her works for children and the acceptance speech given at the annual banquet.
The Phoenix Award annually recognizes one English-language children's book published twenty years earlier that did not then win a major literary award. It is named for the mythical bird phoenix that is reborn from its own ashes, signifying the book's rise from relative obscurity. The award was established and is conferred by the Children's Literature Association ChLA , a nonprofit organization based in the United States whose mission is to advance "the serious study of children's literature". The winner is selected by an elected committee of five ChLA members, from nominations by members and outsiders. The token is a brass statue.
