Well, this is just a banner week for Writers’ League members appearing on the Jan. 31 New York Times best-seller list.
- Liz Garton Scanlon sits at #2 on the Picturebooks list with her Caldecott Honor book, All the World.
- Jacqueline Kelly’s Newbery Honor book, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, is at #10 on the Chapter Books list.
- Kathi Appelt’s The Underneath, is at #8 on the Paperback Books list (among its awards: National Book Award finalist, 2009 Newbery Honor, and the 2009 WLT Book Award for Children’s Books)
And fellow Texan Rick Riordan is also riding high with Percy Jackson & the Olympians topping the Series list. Oh yeah, and there’s that Lighting Thief movie to look forward on Feb. 12!
Congrats to all!
