Young Bond series in the running for Blue Peter Best Children's Book of the Decade

02-Feb-2012 • Young Bond

Blue Peter wants YOU to vote for your favourite book of the last 10 years.

The Young Bond series penned by comic turned children's author Charlie Higson is in the running, along with Grisham's "Theodore Bone", Alex Rider, and Lemony Snicket.

As the Guardian reports, many of the authors expressed their delight at being on the list by referring to the BBC TV show's most famous honour.

"I'm utterly delighted that Candyfloss is on this Blue Peter shortlist for the best children's book of the last 10 years. I love Blue Peter and my most treasured piece of jewellery is my special gold Blue Peter badge," said Jacqueline Wilson. Charlie Higson asked, "Will James Bond get his own Blue Peter badge?"

Thanks to `` for the alert.
