I am so excited that the Cybils lists have been announced. I am so proud of our middle grades list, the “Fab Five”. With two chats and hundreds of emails over the past few months, we worked so hard to come up with the best list possible. It was so great to talk with, argue with, and learn from people who are just as passionate about children’s books as I am. Honestly, I think we are the best panel.
Here are the finalists!
Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things by Lenore Look
Diamond Willow by Helen Frost
Every Soul A Star by Wendy Mass
Shooting the Moon by Frances O’Roark Dowell
The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd
Good luck to the judges- I don’t know how you will be able to choose just one winner!
