We really wanted to make sure that all of our winning titles were featured on the Cybils blog in some way--and we also wanted to plug just a few more of our wonderful, hardworking, blogging volunteers--so here's one last roundup of reviews of Cybils-winning titles that haven't yet been featured here on the main blog.
- Fantasy and Sci-Fi category organizer Tasha Saecker reviewed FSF YA winner The Hunger Games, saying "this is a contender for the best science fiction for teens this year." Read her review here.
- Our own Literacy Evangelist Jen Robinson reviewed Middle Grade Fiction winner The London Eye Mystery and MG/YA Non-Fiction winner The Year We Disappeared. Read the reviews here and here.
- Mary Lee at A Year of Reading reviewed Fiction Picture Books winner How to Heal a Broken Wing: "This book is good for every age--preschool, elementary, adults. I can't really think of an audience that wouldn't appreciate it." Click here for the review.
- David Elzey of The Excelsior File took a detailed look at YA Graphic Novels winner Emiko Superstar, citing "the strength of the voice and character" as a reason for its excellence. Read the review here.
Don't leave yet! Lastly, here's just one more tidbit of fabulous Cybils love that was sent our way by the author of Non-Fiction Picture Books winner Nic Bishop Frogs:
I just wanted to say how excited I was to see my book Nic Bishop Frogs as Cybils non-fiction picture book winner. And, of course, to pass on my thanks to all at Cybils, and the judges who took time to look through all the books... It's a great honor to be on the Cybils and to see non-fiction being promoted, and it is especially exciting for me to see the appreciation of photography in children's non-fiction.
