Joni Sensel's THE FARWALKER'S QUEST is a finalist in the middle grade fantasy category of the Cybils award (right between Laini Taylor and Neil Gaiman--what a talent sandwich).
Our former member Joan Holub has an easy reader on the list: SHAMPOODLE.
Justina Chen is on the list in the YA category for the oft-starred NORTH OF BEAUTIFUL.
Our honorary member Lisa Schroeder also gets a nod in the YA category for FAR FROM YOU.
And in other bits of happiness, Brenda Z. Guiberson's LIFE IN THE BOREAL FOREST is featured today on Anastasia Suen's site (and it was featured last night in my living room; my 9-year-old wanted to know how Gennady Spirin did the fantastic illustrations).
