where the mountain meets the moon wins newbery honor

Cool news. Last week, Grace Lin's children's book Where the Mountain Meets the Moon was awarded a Newbery Honor by the American Library Association. This is one of the highest honors given to American literature for children. Congratulations!

I previously mentioned Where the Mountain Meets the Moon last month as part of my Angry Holiday Gift Guide. Did you pick it up?

The book is described as a fantastical adventure fable in the tradition of The Wizard of Oz, inspired by the author's love of traditional Chinese folk tales. To learn more about Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, visit Grace Lin's website here. Also check out her blog here.
