Children’s Book Awards Announced

NEW YORK (AP) _ Kate DiCamillo’s “Flora & Ulysses” has won the John Newbery Medal for the year’s best work of children’s literature. Brian Floca won the Randolph Caldecott Medal for his illustrations in “Locomotive.”

The awards, the most prestigious in children’s publishing, were announced Monday by the American Library Association. DiCamillo, a popular and acclaimed author, won the Newbery a decade ago for “The Tales of Despereaux.” The Library of Congress recently named her National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature.

Marcus Sedgwick’s “Midwinterblood” received the Michael L. Printz Award for best young adult book. Rita Williams-Garcia’s “P.S. Be Eleven” won the Coretta Scott King Book Award for the best African-American book. The King award for illustration went to Bryan Collier and “Knock Knock: My Dad’s Dream for Me.”
