The Pacific Northwest Library Association has announced its Young Reader’s Choice Awards for 2007 in three categories:
- Junior (4th–6th grade)—Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke
- Intermediate (7th–9th grade)—Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer
- Senior (10th–12th grade)—Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett
I’ve read Dragon Rider and think it’s a great book for upper elementary kids. But I’m unfamiliar with the other two books. Both of my daughters have loved Eoin Colfer’s previous works, and I’ve gotten a recommendation to read Terry Pratchett’s work as well so I look forward to exploring these authors.
