Chris has won the Carnegie Medal, Rotherham Children’s Book Award and Books Factor Award and has been given an honourary doctorate from the University of Leicester, where he still works.

Chris d’Lacey became a published author when he submitted an entry to a contest to win £2,000, but did not win. Despite this, a publisher did purchase the book, which was A Hole at the Pole.
