I am thrilled to see two wonderful works of historical fiction take home the top awards today --- "Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village," written by Laura Amy Schlitz, is the 2008 Newbery Medal winner. The book is published by Candlewick and edited by the wonderful Mary Lee Donovan. "The Invention of Hugo Cabret," illustrated by Brian Selznick, is the 2008 Caldecott Medal winner. The book is published by Scholastic.
Congratulations Laura and Brian!
There are many other fine books on the award lists, including many other hsitorical fiction reads. Check them out!
