As I sit here feeling like Gomer Pyle ("Surprise, surprise, surprise!"), you can take a look at our ALA Awards page, listing all of the winners announced yesterday and, where available, Horn Book reviews of the winning titles.
I've been the editor in chief of The Horn Book, Inc, since 1996; previously editor of The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books and a children's and young adult librarian. Received my M.A. in library science from the University of Chicago in 1982 and a B.A. from Pitzer College in 1978.
