I have NOT read enough books…

I can’t make any reasonable predictions tonight, not really. I’m not educated enough, aware enough. I’d really just be making a silly leap.  I mean, so many other people have read all the books. It would be foolish for me to make any predictions.  I’d end up wrong, and…

And yet… since when am I wise or cautious or reasonable?

Since when do I mind being wrong?

So here goes:

I hereby grant…

Printz to Jandy Nelson, for The Sky is Everywhere.

Caldecott Medal to Matt Phelan, for Flora’s Very Windy Day

Newbery Medal to Deborah Wiles, for Countdown

Newbery Honor to The Ellen Potter, for The Kneebone Boy

What about you? Care to make any completely ridiculously under-researched guesses?

Why not?
