I'm pretty sure this means I'm supposed to stop working for the day and start drinking beer.

I'd give stars to Fire and A Season of Gifts too. Except, you know, I have no sort of power to give anything stars. Oh well.

Woohoo! I can't believe it! I feel like dancing! Unfortunately i don't have an emergency speech in my PDK for it. I have emergency speeches for many other literary prizes, but for this one, this most elusive star, i am utterly speechless.

Excellent. Lots of good stuff coming out in the upcoming months!

Pamela Turner said...

Thanks for the sparkle next to "The Frog Scientist"'s title! If anyone's looking for me I will be sitting on a barstool next to Kristin.

"Thumb and the Bad Guys" and "Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally)" looks pretty good. I'm looking for for good chapter books for my second-grader. Any other tips?

This looks to be a good listing and should prove valuable to readers.
