Deb Nance of Readerbuzz is a veteran of the Cybils and a Round 1 judge for Nonfiction Picture Books this year. She's a Texas librarian who's been blogging since 2008 about books she's loved--not just reviews, but also booklists, read-alikes, and more. Fun fact: She was first an NFPB panelist back in 2008!
Last month, she reviewed Cybils NFPB finalist Nic Bishop Snakes, by Nic Bishop--who will be a familiar face to anyone keeping up with Cybils over the years. In fact, in 2009, he won a Cybils award for his title Nic Bishop Frogs. The latest volume promises fascinating facts about snakes accompanied by striking photos. In her review, Deb said:

[T]his is another bell ringer of a book. Bishop is a great photographer whose photos of snakes surprise and startle us on every page.
