Oh Yeah. It's On.

Are you ready to see children's books duke it out, Hunger-Games-style, to the bloody finish?


Then turn your eyes away, because School Library Journal's second annual Battle of the Kids' Books starts Monday. Who will win? Who will crawl away bleeding? Who will rise from the undead, summoned by the eldritch arts (otherwise known as audience votes)? Who knows?

Follow the bloodbath via Twitter or at the official Battle of the Kid's Books Blog. That is, the blog for the Battle of the Kids' Books. Because no way am I getting involved in battles with my fellow book bloggers. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm terrified of Mother Reader.

Thanks to Fuse #8 for the announcement.

ETA: to correct the name of the sponsor. Scholastic? Where did I get that from?

Oh, yes! Thanks so much for mentioning our battle. Just one tiny correction --- it is presented by School Library Journal (SLJ) not Scholastic. (Scholastic does have a number of contenders in this year's battle though.)

So excited for this! I loved it last year. Reading the judges rationales has to be the best thing ever.
