Shortlist for SA Book Awards 2020 – Children’s Title
(Fiction and Non-Fiction):
Die Groot Jaco Jacobs Storieboek by Jaco Jacobs
Zackie Mostert by Jaco Jacobs
Yes Yanga! by Refiloe Moahloli
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

The Children’s prize was won by previous winner Trevor Noah for the child adaptation of Born a Crime. On accepting his award Trevor said: “Writing a book was a very scary experience but turning the book into a book specifically for kids was even more scary because children have a very short attention span if your book is boring!” He went on to thank all the kids who read the book, the parents who read the book with their children and the teachers who recommended the book to their students.
