Woo-hoo! My Favourite Book of last year just won the Newbery Award (which is a big deal. Like the Oscars of Children’s books).
It doesn’t hurt that the author is a really nice guy and blogger (and now Twitterer), which makes you feel like something nice just happened to someone you sort of know.
His blog post is here, but his rather-less-filtered and rather-more-sweary Twitter posts were fun too!
