Two New Lists for Samurai Shortstop!

>> Thursday, March 15, 2007

It's that time of year - when the "Best of 2006" lists come out for everything. Today I discovered two more "Best of" lists that feature Samurai Shortstop.

First, the 2006 CCBC Choices: New Books for Children and Young Adults recommended by the Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC) from the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. (Whew, that's a mouthful.) The CCBC organizes recommended titles by subject or genre, and Samurai Shortstop is listed as one of their 39 recommended "Fiction for Young Adults." Thanks guys!

Samurai has also been recognized as one of 100 Librarians' Choices 2006 by Library Science students at Texas Women's University. They do half picture books, half novels - so Samurai Shortstop is among the fifty novels they selected to highlight from last year. Thank you librarians at TWU!
