I am getting so excited about the Cybils 2008. If you’re new to the Cybils, they are the premier web awards for children’s/YA literature, given in all sorts of categories by members of the kidlitosphere. On October 1, you can begin to nominate those titles that you were craziest about in 2008: poetry, Middle Grade, YA, fantasy, fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels… You name it, you’ll find it. The Cybils are all about high-quality writing with kid appeal, so every parent/librarian/bookseller/publisher (and kid!) should care about what gets nominated and of course, what wins. Visit the recently jazzed-up Cybils Blog for all the latest news as things get underway. Yippee!
