Miss Print

*clap* I'm so happy to see Dodsworth and Clementine among the Early Readers finalists.

Amy @ Hope Is the Word

Fantastic lists! I'm so happy to see Cousins of Clouds, Can We Save the Tiger?, I Feel Better with a Frog in My Throat, Planting the Wild Garden, Thunder Birds, The Friendship Doll, and The Cheshire Cheese Cat, all books I have enjoyed this year (and a couple I nominated!!)

Now, on to more Cybils reading!

Lisa Yee

Honored to be a Cybil's finalist! Thank you, Sarah Wendorf, for the nomination!!!

Deb Marshall

Man oh man...you guys are amazing! Great lists and looking forward to catching up with ones I've not read yet. Happy New Year!

Deb Marshall

And congrats to all the short listers!

Kate Coombs

Great lists! Though I'm sort of amazed that Chime didn't make it.

Jason Beineke

Is it possible to get any feedback on the submissions that did not make the short list? Would like to know what the judges had thought of my book and if there were any particular failings to it.


Delighted to see Bunheads as a finalist! Well deserved, and congratulations to all the others, too.


@Jason: Our FAQs state quite clearly that we cannot offer feedback on individual books. Good luck with your book.

Susan (Chicken Spaghetti)

Great lists, y'all! I look forward to my next trip to the library, shortlists in hand.


Great lists! Will there be a printer-friendly version for us to take to the library (i hope, i hope...)?

Sommer Leigh

Congrats to all finalists!


@Jennifer: Thanks for reminding me! Give me a day or so. The hubby usually has to help me with loading it up (I'm technically illiterate). I promise to have one up by week's end, definitely.

Ruckus Media

Congrats to all the finalists!


And a note to the publishers/advertisers: I just made an order card for each book our library doesn't already have. So, ya' know: Cybils count!

Sheila Ruth

Thanks, Ami!


Wow, Ami, thanks so much! That puts a big smile on my face.

Karen Lee

Awesome list again! One request - please, please add the name of the illustrator to the picture book category, even if it is in the blurb! I am a big fan of the winning artists too!


@Karen: How strange. We've always listed illustrators in the past. Not sure what happened. I'll have to check with the person who runs the database, as this all loads automatically. Of course they should be listed!


Oh no! Do I have egg on my face. It seems we haven't listed illustrators for the last several years in the finalists. Oh my. I will see if we can fix that.

I'm so thrilled to have Dodsworth as a Cybil's finalist! Thank you so, so much! What a great way to start the new year!!!


Our pleasure, Tim! My kids were fans of Dodsworth when they were littler so I was thrilled to see him make the finals -- though probably not as thrilled as you :)


Great YA list. I just wish the word "crazeballs" hadn't been used in the blurb. It's offensive to those of us who have been there and seen our own ants and lived to tell the tale.

Congratulations for the finalists. You did a great job that's why you are worthy to have this kind of recognition. Keep inspiring us.
