So while we wait for the announcement of the Bluebonnet Award, let's take a look at the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction, which goes annually to the author of a distinguished work of historical fiction for young people published by a U. S. publisher and set in the Americas.
so this is one of the books being talked about as a Caldecott Award contender. (This of course, is the award for best illustration of a children's book, and the winner will be announced January 27.) The illustrator happens to be one of my favorites - LeUyen Pham.
