Woohoo, John Green!

Congratulations to John Green, whose wonderful novel, Looking For Alaska, won the Printz award for best young adult novel of the year.

It's a really funny, really involving, thought-provoking book and you all should read it.

I'm also pleased about the Caldecott winner (best illustrated book). It was Chris Rashka for The Hello Goodbye Window, by Norton Juster (who also wrote The Phantom Tollbooth). That is a really excellent picture book, and he's a great artist.
