List Mania Continues!

Leave a comment

I love this time of the year. I read end-of-year book lists like some people follow the NFL. This one isn’t necessarily a “best of” list, but it is a list of books featured in the Briefly Noted section of the December 5 issue of The New Yorker. That’s noteworthy in itself. The New Yorker seldom dedicates that whole column to books for young readers. These are the books on the list:

Wildwood by Colin Meloy

The Man in the Moon by William Joyce (the first book in Joyce’s Guardians of Childhood series)

The Chronicles of Harris Burdick by many authors

Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick

Grandpa Green by Lane Smith

Squish Rabbit by Katherine Battersby (the first book by an Australian author and illustrator. The cover is so great that this one will go on permanent display in the school library!)
