Monday, again. Can’t I get an award for just showing up?

Posing Otter

“Oh, my eyes! Is it really Monday, again?”

Apparently our blogger overindulged this [Super Bowl Sunday] weekend, again. So, here’s some book award news that’s fit to print!

Katherine Applegate has won the 2013 Newbery Medal for The One and Only Ivan (Harper). This novel, based on a true story, is narrated by a silverback gorilla that lives in an ill-run roadside attraction with other performing animals; illustrated by Patricia Castelao Costa. (Don’t worry, it has a happy ending.)

Jon Klassen has won the 2013 Randolph Caldecott Medal (for Picture Book Artistry) for This Is Not My Hat (Candlewick), in which a small fish gleefully steals a hat belonging to a larger fish and tries to get away with it; it was edited by Liz Bicknell.
