Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards

This announcement (June 4th) passed me by a coule of days ago and hence, annoyingly, was not included in today's eLetter update (now active again after a brief hibernation).

Emily Gravett's Wolves is one of the two Picture Book 'honor' titles. ACHUKA can only applaud and hear-hear the selection of The Astonishing Life Of Octavian Nothing as the winner in the Fiction and Poetry section

Fiction and Poetry:
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume I: The Pox Party (Candlewick) by M. T. Anderson
Picture Book: Dog and Bear: Two Friends, Three Stories (Porter/Roaring Brook) written and illustrated by Laura Vaccaro Seeger
Nonfiction: The Strongest Man in the World: Louis Cyr (Groundwood) written and illustrated by Nicolas Debon

Read on for details of the honor books and the judging panel....

The judges also selected two honor books in each category:

Fiction and Poetry: Clementine (Hyperion) written by Sara Pennypacker, illustrated by Marla Frazee
Rex Zero and the End of the World (Kroupa/Farrar) by Tim Wynne-Jones
