  1. Once upon a time I was a part of the Mythopoeic Society... :( I miss their fun little newsletter. But I'm really excited that they're continuing to honor modern children's authors - that's excellent!

  2. Thank you for posting on this! I'm a bit behind at the moment and hadn't seen. Now I want to read all four.

  3. I rather like this award--it's very much a "books Charlotte might like" sort of thing. The two non-fiction ones sound particularly interesting....and I've added Lifelode to my list too!

  4. I'm glad Grace Lin won. I loved her book.
