Gaiman's graveyard genius...

The winner of the Cilip Carnegie Medal has been announced as Neil Gaiman. The prestigious prize, awarded by children's librarians for an outstanding book for children and young people, was presented to Gaiman for his 'gripping page-turner' novel 'The Graveyard Book', which is 'full of humour and humanity'. Although an outstanding literary figure, Gaiman is not unknown in the realm of screen work, having written an episode of 'Doctor Who', and having seen novels 'Stardust' and 'Coraline' become Hollywood hits. His prize will include a gold medal, and £500 worth of books to donate to a library of his choice.
