More Awards. More! MORE!

Chicken Spaghetti has the skinny on the 2007 Orbis Pictus Award winners, doled out by the NCTE. A fine showing of superb non-fiction. The only gaping hole I could think of off the top of my head was Kathleen Krull's biography of Isaac Newton. How'd they miss that one?

I think, although the text was very engaging, that the lack of source notes was very problematic. Well researched non-fiction should also be well-cited.

I was discussing Krull's "Isaac Newton" in the post above.

Boy, I'm with anonymous on the well-cited! (Not that I've read the bio you mention...)

Thank you for the link. You sent a freeway full of traffic my way!

That was a similar objection noted by the ALA Notables committee. I understand the concern, of course. Still, it's hard not to love the book in spite of that. So engaging. So interesting. Ah well.
