Awards and Prizes...

Derek Landy, author of Skulduggery Pleasant, won the Red House children's book prize in the older readers category, according to the Guardian, which reported that "three years ago Landy was working on the [cauliflower] farm and writing low-budget Irish zombie movies when the character, a wise-cracking, sophisticated detective in the vein of Philip Marlowe, popped into his head out of the blue."

At BEA (Book Expo America) last week, Brian Selznick won the Book Sense Book of the Year Award in children's literature for The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Earlier this year he won the Caldecott Medal for that book. We read and enjoyed that book here on the Blogger Book Club, too! See what we had to say about it here.
