2010 Literary Award Winners for Children and Young Adults

2010 Award Winning Titles for Children & Young Adults

The American Library Association (ALA) today announced the top books, audiobooks and video for children and young adults – including the Caldecott, King, Newbery and Printz award

Winner of the Randolph Caldecott Medal for most distinguished American picture book for children.

The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney (Caldecott Winner)

In this wordless adaptation of one of Aesop’s most beloved fables by an award-winning artist, an unlikely pair learns that no act of kindness is ever wasted. With vivid depictions of the landscape of the African Serengeti and expressively drawn characters, Pinkney makes this a truly special retelling.

Winner of the 2010 John Newbery Medal for most outstanding contribution to children’s literature.

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead (Newberry Winner)

Four mysterious letters change Miranda’s world forever.

By sixth grade, Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. They know where it’s safe to go, like the local grocery store, and they know whom to avoid, like the crazy guy on the corner.

But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a new kid for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The apartment key that Miranda’s mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note scrawled on a tiny slip of paper: “I am coming to save your friend’s life, and my own. I must ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter.”

The notes keep coming, and Miranda slowly realizes that whoever is leaving them knows all about her, including things that have not even happened yet. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death until the final note makes her think she’s too late.

Winner of the Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in literature written for young adults.

Going Bovine by Libba Bray (Printz Winner)

All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school–and life in general–with a minimum of effort. It’s not a lot to ask. But that’s before he’s given some bad news: he’s sick and he’s going to die. Which totally sucks. Hope arrives in the winged form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel/possible hallucination with a bad sugar habit. She tells Cam there is a cure–if he’s willing to go in search of it. With the help of a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf and a yard gnome, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America into the heart of what matters most.

A list of all the 2010 literary award winners follows: (more…)
