ALA Youth Media Awards...(aka the Caldecott and Newbery Medals)

We didn't have a library club this trimester so there wasn't a Newbery Gala where students watched the award ceremony.  If we had though, I can tell you none of the students would have guessed which book would win this year.

First off the honors.  There were three and I was pleased with all of the winners.  In no particular order, the Newbery honors are:

So now we have the winner...drum roll please!

Surprised?   Me too.  However, if you look at the criteria for the actual award there isn't really anything that says it can't be a picture book, it's just not usually done.  What do you guys think?  If you want to take a look at the book, we have it in the Lower School Library, Mrs. Knauer has it out and would be happy to show it to you.
