2010 award winners

On Monday, the American Library Association announced the winners of its annual awards for children’s and young adult literature.  The full press release is on the ALA web site, but here are the winners of the most notable awards:

When You Reach Me
by Rebecca Stead
Winner of the John Newbery Medal
for most outstanding contribution to children’s literature

The Lion and the Mouse
illustrated and written by Jerry Pinkney
Winner of the Randolph Caldecott Medal
for most distinguished American picture book for children

Going Bovine
by Libba Bray
Winner of the Michael L. Printz Award
for excellence in literature written for young adults

I’ve read (and sincerely enjoyed) When You Reach Me, and I’m interested in looking into Bray’s novel as well.  I’ve heard good things about Bray previously, but haven’t taken the plunge into her work.  This may be enough incentive to give her work a try.
