Best Children's Books of 2009
In case you missed it, here's the Publishers Weekly list of the best children's books of the year. I was pleased to see some of my favorites on the list, including Rebecca Stead's When You Reach Me (read my glowing review here), Shaun Tan's crazy-cool Tales from Outer Suburbia, and Peter Brown's eco-friendly picture book, The Curious Garden, with its touch of magical realism. Richard Peck's A Season of Gifts and Libba Bray's Going Bovine are in my To Read pile; I'll have to move them to the top!
