And the Award Goes To...

"The Newbery [award for children's literature] has probably done far more to turn kids off to reading than any other book award in children's publishing." So says at least on researcher. The award winning books demand that kids stretch themselves too much, so the awards should be based more on accessibility and less on depth. Perhaps they should just give the Newberry to the latest "Captain Underpants" bestseller.
