Since 1999 Storylines has produced an annual list of outstanding books for children and young people published in New Zealand by New Zealand authors and illustrators during the previous calendar year.
This annual list of Storylines Notable Books ensures that children, parents/grandparents, teachers, librarians and the public are all made aware of the large range of high quality New Zealand books being published.
Books are categorised as: Picture Book, Junior Fiction, Young Adult, Non Fiction and Te Reo Māori. There are up to ten awards in each category.
Storylines Notable Books are selected by five expert panels drawn from the Storylines community. The panels include children’s and YA librarians, authors, illustrators, teachers and academics; several members have served as judges for the previous AIM, New Zealand Post and LIANZA Book Awards.
