The Newbery Award deliberations are this week...
...and thanks to my daughter Rachel, I saw this post from Shannon Hale, author of the Honor book - not the final winner, mind you - Princess Academy.
What did the Newbery ever do for me?
(The Goose Girl was pretty amazing, too, by the way. She's got quite a series of these books in the fantasy/fairy tale/myth genre that I enjoyed this past year. And yes, we have her newest, the graphic novel Rapunzel's Revenge, available for checkout at the L.W. Nixon Library.)
