La vache qui lit

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The La vache qui lit was a children's and youth book prize that was awarded under this name from 1976 to 2001 by the children's bookshop in Zurich. The French name La vache qui lit (German: “the cow that reads”) is a modification of the brand name La vache qui rit (German: “the cow that laughs”) of a well-known French cheese spread.

The prize has been awarded again since 2017 under the name of the Zurich Children's Book Prize. “New children's books aimed at children of primary school age” are to be awarded. The prize is endowed with 5000 Swiss Francs. In 2017, Enno Anders was honored by Astrid Frank (recommended for young readers aged 10 and over), in 2018 Ein Sommer in Sommerby by Kirsten Boie and in 2019 Sonne, Moon and Sterne by Lara Schützsack (recommended for ages 10 and up).
