The Children’s Book Council has announced the winners for this year’s Children’s Choice and Teen Choice Book Awards, the only national book awards program where the winners are selected by children (though, unfortunately, we do know that large numbers of grown-ups voted in the author of the year category) and teens. Please visit the Children’s Book Week Gala site
where you may watch the whole show. If you don’t wish to do that, read on!
