Burr/Worzalla Awards

The Wisconsin Library Association has announced the Elizabeth Burr/Worzalla Award Winner for 2006:
Invisible by Pete Hautman
The award is given to a Wisconsin author or illustrator for distinguished achievement in children’s literature. How lovely that Invisible won! It was one of my favorites of 2005. And now I know that Hautman is from Wisconsin which opens up programming possibilities. *sound of gears in head spinning*

Crackback by John Coy
Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert (Hurrah!)
Leonardo Da Vinci by Kathleen Krull
The Lioness & Her Knight by Gerald Morris
White is for Blueberry by George Shannon (Hurrah!)
