Children's Book Week
It's the middle of Children's Book Week, and the Children's Choice Book Awards were announced at last night's Gala! Stephenie Meyer took Author of the Year and Teen Choice for Breaking Dawn (shocker) and Jon Muth the Illustrator of the Year award, for Zen Ties. Mo Willems's Pigeon Wants a Puppy snagged the K-2 grade book of the year, Dinah Williams's Spooky Cemeteries the 3-4 category, and Thirteen by Lauren Myracle the 5-6 category.
For the rest of the week's events, check out the Children's Book Council website. The week concludes in Boston's own Copley Square at the Boston Public Library and neighboring branches. You can see such authors as Kate Feiffer (Which Puppy?), Sara Pennypacker (Clementine), Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Punk Farm), and Megan McDonald (Judy Moody). After the event, come on over and check out more books by these talented folks!
