Mock Caldecott Results 2008!

Over the past year, our Mock Caldecott group looked at books from the suggested reading list. This morning we gathered at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art to discuss the books and view the wonderful Allen Say exhibit.

We selected one title as our 2008 Mock Caldecott winner and three titles as Honor books.

The Mock Caldecott winner we selected for 2008 was:

The Chicken-Chasing Queen of Lamar County by Janice N. Harrington, illustrated by Shelley Jackson.

Our Mock Caldecott Honor books were:

Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll, reimagined and illustrated by Christopher Myers

Cowboy and Octopus by Jon Scieszka, illustrated by Lane Smith

I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry

Very nice choices! Though I'm disappointed Hugo Cabret isn't represented. :-(
