The Hugo Awards don't generally offer much for readers of middle grade sci fi/fantasy, but this year I was awfully pleased to see that Ursula Vernon, of Dragonbreath fame, won the "Best Graphic Story" award for Digger. I've been meaning to try Digger for ages; here's the blurb for Vol. 1:
"Digger is a story about a wombat. More specifically, it is a story about a particularly no-nonsense wombat who finds herself stuck on the wrong end of a one-way tunnel in a strange land where nonsense seems to be the specialty. Now with the help of a talking statue of a god, an outcast hyena, a shadow-being of indeterminate origin, and an oracular slug she seeks to find out where she is and how to go about getting back to her Warren."
The best novel Hugo award went to Among Others, by Jo Walton, which is a book that struck me as one I should love, but I didn't.
