Richie's Top Picks of 2006

You all probably know about the great Richie’s Picks website filled with reviews of books for children and teens. Richie is always right on the money with his reviews and reads an amazing number of titles each year. Richie has just announced his Richie’s Picks Best of 2006.
I am prepared to forgive him his adoration of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane because he has so many great books on his list! 🙂
