I'm delighted to report that I'm going to be a Cybils judge this year for Round 2 in Fiction Picture Books. I'm thrilled to be joining these talented souls in selecting the best of the best in kid-friendly, well-written fiction picture books for 2012 (technically October 16, 2011 through October 15, 2012).
I'm a little sad not to be doing Round 1 again, as I did last year, but I just couldn't manage the time commitment this time around. Perhaps next year I'll try for that again. Anyway, I have complete faith in this year's Round 1 team to come up with a list of lovely choices. The hard part will come in deciding between them, of course. But I look forward to the challenge, and to getting to know my fellow panelists. Great books await!
