2010 Nominations
Fiction Picture Books

The category of Fiction Picture Books seems so clearcut as simply books that are fictional in nature and contain pictures. Oh, but there is so much more. The genre contains titles for toddlers and third graders, funny stories and moving tales, history and fantasy, traditions and diversity, elegance and silliness, education and entertainment. All these types of books must be weighed against each other to put together a Cybils shortlist of standouts that excel in story, illustration, kid appeal and literary value. Not so simple a task in not so simple a category, but at end of the Cybils judging, we plan to bring you some of the best in fiction picture books and a final winner to represent them all.
