And the 2008 Winner Is....

Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village, by Laura Amy Schlitz

the Honors winners are:

Elijah of Buxton, by Christopher Paul Curtis (ha! I just checked this out of the library yesterday)

The Wednesday Wars, by Gary D. Schmidt

Feathers, by Jacqueline Woodson

They all sound pretty interesting. There's a blurb from the American Library Association here.

I agree, these do look very interesting and I hope that we get the ok to order (bleh - budget cuts). I thought the Caldecott Award book was crazy - 555 pages for a picture book. Obviously soemthing closer to a graphic novel!

I'm not too surprised that "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" won the Caldecott. There was a lot of buzz about it being in contention for either the Newbery or the Caldecott. The illustrations are fabulous!
