The colder weather and the influx of new Christmas picture books has us thinking ahead to January, which, along with snow, brings the announcement of the Newbery, Caldecott, and Printz Awards! We’re so excited about the announcement that we’ve put together our own predictions. So read on, go check one out, make your own prediction, and then tune in in January for the winners!
One for the Murphys by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen (other contenders illustrated by Klassen could be the gorgeous House Held Up By Trees, written by Ted Kooser, or the darkly funny This is Not My Hat, written by Klassen and a follow-up to his I Want My Hat Back).
The Isomniacs by Karina Wolf, illustrated by Sean and Ben Hilts (first-time picture book creators, which is always interesting!)
Printz Award 2013:
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (Besides being a popular social media presence, Green also holds the title of Printz award winner for the poignant Looking for Alaska and honored for An Abundance of Katherines)
