Awards: Bookbug Picture Book Winner

Chae Strathie and Nicola O'Byrne's Gorilla Loves Vanilla won this year's Scottish Book Trust Bookbug Picture Book Prize, which is voted for by children. More than 22,000 votes were cast in total.

"I would like to thank the teachers. I would like to thank librarians, mums and dads, the Scottish Book Trust, and of course all the other wonderful authors who were on the shortlist," Strathie said in an entertaining video. "It really means a lot to have won when there were such brilliant books on the list. And I think that's about it, yeah, and we've thanked everyone, yeah? Hang on a minute! Almost forgot the most important people and that's you! So I'd like to thank all of you, the children, who voted for Gorilla Loves Vanilla. Thousands of you voted, it was wonderful, so thank you very much for that."
