School Library Journal has posted their list of the best children’s and young adult books for 2007. http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/article/CA6504067.html?q=best+books+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. http://www.amazon.com/Talented-Clementine-Sara-Pennypacker/dp/0786838701
Congrats to both Marla and Sara!
