Hall of Fame

Books Nominated 5 Years

Never Won a YABBA

A Special Place in the Readers Hearts

YABBA Hall of Fame

Many great books are nominated each each, but only one can actually be the winner.  Some books are nominated year in year out, but never actually get to win a YABBA Award.

Once a book has been nominated five times, but has yet to win a YABBA we feel it deserves recognition for the special place it occupies in the hearts and minds of Victorian children.  That’s why we have the Hall of Fame.

These books have been inducted into the YABBA Hall of Fame over the years because they have been nominated five times but not won a YABBA.
