Can You Match Kid Lit Creators with Their Desks?

Submit your response and let Ms. Hunsaker know how you did.
Get a treat for participating in our first Lion Library competition

Guess the Kidlit Desks Contest

Many of your favorite authors/illustrators of children’s/YA books have…

revealed their superhero costumes (2012).
read aloud bad reviews…of their own books (2014).
seen their characters collide in (phony) merged sequels (2014).
answered a Proust Questionnaire, kidlit-style (2015).

Now, inspired in part by a 1996 book called The Writer’s Desk and in part because I’ve apparently got a thing for desks, you’re about to see their workspaces. Actually, you’re about to guess their workspaces. That’s right…this time, it’s a contest. And there are prizes.

ALA announces new awards

(CNN) The winners of the 2016 Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, Coretta Scott King and other prestigious youth media awards were announced Monday morning by the American Library Association. Matt de la Peña is the first Latino author to win the Newbery Medal for outstanding contribution to children’s literature for his book “Last Stop on Market Street,” illustrated by Christian Robinson.

The book tells the story of CJ’s bus ride with his grandma, the child noting the economic differences he sees along the way and Grandma teaching him to appreciate what he has in his life and throughout the city.

The Caldecott Medal went to “Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear,” illustrated by Sophie Blackall and written by Lindsay Mattick. The book tells the real-life story of a World War I veterinarian who rescued a bear and named it Winnie, who eventually became the inspiration for the fictional Winnie-the-Pooh.  Read more
