In 2003 Redbridge Schools' Library Service decided to pilot a new local book award.
The aims of the award scheme are:
- to inspire children to read for pleasure.
- to encourage children to read, review and debate and thus appreciate good quality literature.
- to encourage an ethos of independent reading within schools and across the borough.
- to provide a stepping stone to the Carnegie Award.
