Okay, it doesn't take me long before I just can't help myself.
Newbery--A graphic novel as a winner? Huh? AWESOME! Way to go committee!!!
Caldecott--Why oh why does the same book essentially win over and over again? Wiesner (just like Eric Carle) is essentially making the same book over and over again. Does he need to keep winning for the same thing? Can't the committee come up with something more fresh and original?
I'm going to now call out for a NEW AWARD. It will be an award for something NEW FRESH ORIGINAL DIFFERENT. That's what we need! Stop awarding the same people for the same things.
Meghan (who doesn't care if she's an author and illustrator and shouldn't publicly voice her opinion--she is anyway!)
p.s - these opinions are only those of Meghan's and not the rest of the BRG
