My book, Woogie's Travels, has been nominated for the Easy Readers category of the Cybils 2008 awards. It's the annual children's and young adult bloggers' literary awards.
Here's the message they sent us:
ANNOUNCEMENT FROM CYBILS
It’s Cybils season again and one of your books has been nominated!
Now in our third year, the Cybils are an international series of book awards selected by a talented panel of children's and young adult bloggers. Our award seeks to find books that strike the balance between literary quality and kid appeal. Nominations were open to the public, and anyone could nominate a book published in the current year.
Nominations closed on October 15, and now a panel of experienced children's literature bloggers for each category will be reading the nominated books and selecting a shortlist of 5 to 7 finalists for each category, to be announced on January 1. After that, a separate judging panel will read the finalists and choose a winner, to be announced on February 14.
Although we can't guarantee any reviews, some of the panelists are also reviewing nominated books as they read for the award. You can find the list of nominees, as well as more information about the award, on our web site at http://www.cybils.com/
