Hello guys, the elusive Master Jedi Zack has dug himself out of the piles of books to write again!!!
Every year around this time the American Library Association (sounds like a fun group of folk, right?!) announces the best books of the year in a whole bunch of categories. Normally us Guybrarians see this list shrug and go on with our day, but this year things are different! One of my all time favorite authors, Neil Gaiman, won the Newbery Medal for The Graveyard Book.
Darth Bill wrote about this book in his puppy and kitten post recently. The Newbery Medal is the highest honor librarians give to a children's book, and I must say I'm proud of the choice that was made this year. Read the book!!!
