Kid Lit Award Winners

hugo.jpgThe drum roll please … I have an important announcement: two unconventional books, one by Laura Amy Schlitz and the other by Brian Selznick, have won the most prestigious awards for American children’s literature.

Schlitz, a librarian, won the Newbery Medal for “Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices From a Medieval Village” — a collection of theatrical monologues originally written as a performance piece for fifth-grade students studying the Middle Ages.

Selznick won the Caldecott Medal for The Invention of Hugo Cabret — a tale of an orphan who lives in a Paris train station that is driven primarily by elegant black-and-white drawings, which qualified it for the picture-book award.
