[yawn] book awards

I was amused by Lois Lowry's throwaway reference to the children's book awards today, at her blog. Presumably she didn't know she was winning something? Or perhaps she is just blase after her five hundred Newbery medals. ;-)

I don't keep up enough with current books to have an opinion on most of the big winners, but I'm happy to see Lowry, and also the late James Marshall, honored.
