The Prix Albertine Jeunesse is a prize chosen for children, by children—that is, a reader’s choice award in which people between the ages of three and fourteen vote on their favorite book from a selection of Francophone literature. This award aims to facilitate a cultural exchange as well as encourage a love of learning languages and reading works in translation.
This year’s theme is “growing up,” and the winners are below. Allons-y!
Orianne Lallemand and Eleanore Thuillier, The Wolf Who Learned Self-Control (Le Loup qui Apprivoisait Ses Emotions)
Coralie Saudo and Kris Di Giacomo, My Dad at the Zoo (Mon Papa au Zoo)
Loïc Dauvillier and Marc Lizano, Hidden (L’enfent Cachée)
Tom Haugomat, Through A Life (À travers)
