Imagine having kids vote for you as author of the year. Would it get any better than that? Congratulations to the winners of the Children’s Choice Book Awards!

From Publishers Lunch:

The Children’s Choice Book Awards honored Rick Riordan as author of the year and David Wiesner (Art and Max) as illustrator of the year, based on votes from over 500,000 kids. Riordan also won in the fifth to sixth grade category for THE RED PYRAMID. The Children’s Book Council decided not to present their Impact prize to Three Cups of Tea co-author Greg Mortenson, however, “in the face of so many unanswered questions.” Other winners:

Kindergarten to second grade
Little Pink Pup, by Johanna Kerby

Third to fourth grade
Lunch Lady and the Summer Camp Shakedown, by Jarrett Krosoczka

Will Grayson, Will Grayson, by John Green and David Levithan


  1. I agree, Anita! To me, that would be the most valuable “prize.” 😀
