The Eugenie Summerfield Children's Book Prize has been established in memory of the children’s author Eugenie Summerfield. She is popularly remembered as the author of the Wriggly Worm Stories on BBC Radio Four’s ‘Listen with Mother’. Humour, imagination and an engaging literary style were central to Eugenie’s own writing and it is the aim of this prize that this approach to children’s writing should be fostered and encouraged. The prize will be biennial and will be first awarded in 2018.
