The Booksellers Association of the United Kingdom & Ireland Limited

 
 The BA Children’s Bookselling Group launched the Indie Booksellers Children’s Book of the Season (CBOTS) this year, with the Book of the  Season chosen by a panel of indie booksellers from a range of new children’s titles submitted by publishers. The Book of the Season aims to  showcase indie bookshops’ ability to promote and sell children’s books. The first title to be chosen is a picture book; in other seasons the genre  will change.





The BA Children’s Bookselling Group has announced its first Indie Bookseller Children’s Book of the Season - Oi Cat! by Kes Gray and Jim Field. 
 
Oi Cat!
 
 
 For this first season, around 60 indie bookshops are taking part and will be promoting Oi Cat! for a minimum of two weeks from 8th September. The BA is supporting the promotion of the CBOTS through social media and promotional materials including posters, stickers, bookmarks and other POS material.
 
Publishers who would like to submit a title for the Winter Book of the Season (published between end November 2017 and end January 2018) should email sharon.benton@booksellers.org.uk for an submission form.  Booksellers can download the logo here.
