Philip Reeve Wins The CILIP Carnegie Medal 2008

Philip Reeve, award-winning children's author, has been described as having a “startling imagination” and is clearly a man of many talents. While living in Brighton, he made amateur films, turning to illustration of children’s books to help fund this enthusiasm.

Philip Reeve's first novel "Mortal Engines" won the Gold Smarties Award and The Blue Peter Book of The Year award, his second novel, "Predator's Gold, was long-listed for the prestigious Carnegie Medal 2003. The third novel is Infernal Devices, and the final book in the series, "A Darkling Plain" won the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. The award winning series has also achieved some success in the United States, where is is known as the "Hungry City Chronicles".

April 2006: Warner Brothers has pre-emptively bought film rights on "Larklight". The book is described in Bloomsbury's editorial review as "utterly unique and devilishly witty, this is Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets The Barchester Chronicles. The film is already in development with Shekhar Kapur as Director.

October 2007: Signed copies of "Starcross", the second novel in the Larklight series, are in stock.

"Here Lies Arthur", published by Scholastic, is shortlisted for the Smarties Prize.

April 2008 on filming of Larklight:"It's a $200 million project, probably the most expensive film I've made and will ever make" Kapur is quoted as announcing. Eastern Promises screenwriter Steve Knight is adapting the novel.
