Cybils Awards

The Cybils Award looks at a combination of literary and popular appeal in Children’s and Young Adult books. They describe the award as thus, “If some la-di-dah awards can be compared to brussels sprouts, and other, more populist ones to gummy bears, we’re thinking more like organic chicken nuggets. We’re yummy and nutritious.” The winners for 2016 are:

    The Cybils group are my kind of awards committee. I’ve actually read some of these winners and I am a fan of organic chicken nuggets.

    I read A Hungry Lion, or a Dwindling Assortment of Animals at a storytime last year and there was much giggling and even some shocked gasps near the end.

    Illuminae was a selection for my book group and though it’s Sci-Fi and dystopian, it had something interesting for everyone in the group. I personally enjoyed the spaceship’s untrustworthy A.I. system.
