The winners of the CYBIL Awards were announced last week—Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards — recognizing books that librarians and kids love. The winners are:
In the Easy Reader category: A Trip to the Bottom of the World with Mouse By Frank Viva (Toon Books)
In the Elementary and Middle Grade Graphic Novel category: ￼ Giants Beware! by Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado (First Second Books)
In the Young adult Graphic novel category: Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks (First Second Books)
It’s nice to see GIANTS BEWARE! get some recognition — people who love this book REALLY love it, and it could be on its way to being a graphic novel perennial.
