Fiction Picture Books– Category Description

category of Fiction Picture Books would appear clearcut: books that are
fictional with pictures. Oh, but that simplicity is deceptive. The
category contains titles for toddlers and third graders, funny stories
and moving tales, history and fantasy, traditions and diversity,
elegance and silliness, education and entertainment. An amazing
conceptual range for books with typically 32 to 48 pages.


these types of books must be weighed against each other to create a
Cybils shortlist of standouts. Not-so-simple a task in not-so-simple a
category.  Please nominate outstanding titles available in print – not
ebooks or boardbooks – that excel in story, illustration, kid appeal and
literary value. And through the Cybils judging, we'll bring you some of
the best in fiction picture books and a final winner to represent them
