Best Books of 2007

School Library Journal has posted their list of the best children’s and young adult books for 2007.

One of my favorite poems (by Lewis Carroll) JABBORWOCKY has earned a spot on the list with ultra-cool illustrations by Christopher Meyers. In Meyers’ version of the poem, the Jabborwock brings his intimidating battle to the basketball court. What a clever, updated look at all the “galumphing” and “burbling.” This book is truly “frabjous.”

Our featured illustrator from last Saturday (Marla Frazee) also had a book on the list: THE TALENTED CLEMENTINE by Sara Pennypacker.

Congrats to both Marla and Sara!
