message 1: by Mr. Prince (new)

Mr. Prince Projekt 1065 is ineligible because it was published in 2016.


message 2: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Welcome: A Mo Willems Guide for New Arrivals is a picture book for babies. While picture books are eligible, I think the criteria is that it's for readers age 8 and up.

Destinee Sutton Jessica wrote: "Welcome: A Mo Willems Guide for New Arrivals is a picture book for babies. While picture books are eligible, I think the criteria is that it's for readers age 8 and up."

Actually, it's 0-14. "Children are defined as persons of ages up to and including fourteen, and books for this entire age range are to be considered."

You can read all the terms and criteria here: http://www.ala.org/alsc/awardsgrants/...


message 4: by Destinee (new)

Destinee Sutton I love Goldfish Boy, but the Newbery is "restricted to authors who are citizens or residents of the United States." Lisa Thompson is British and lives in Suffolk.


message 5: by Laurie (new)

Laurie Destinee wrote: "I love Goldfish Boy, but the Newbery is "restricted to authors who are citizens or residents of the United States." Lisa Thompson is British and lives in Suffolk."

I agree that Lisa Thompson is ineligible because she was born in northern Tasmania, Australia & lives in the UK. Can the owner of the list remove it?


message 6: by Becky (new)

Becky B Projekt 1065 was released in 2016, not 2017


message 7: by Natasha (new)

Natasha Stanton I would love to Slider by Hautman on the list.

Becky B Becky wrote: "Projekt 1065 was released in 2016, not 2017"

I deleted it from the list.


message 10: by Jessica (new)

Jessica I would like to see Lemons by Melissa Savage on the list.

same with A Crack In the Sea


message 12: by Becky (new)

Becky B same with A Crack In the Sea"
I removed A Crack in the Sea


message 13: by Leonard (new)

Leonard Kim I just checked out and read A Crack in the Sea and it had a 2017 copyright.


message 14: by Venessa (new)

Venessa Carson Crack in the Sea is eligible this year. It was published in 2017.


message 15: by Becky (new)

Becky I added Crack in the Sea back in through my list but folks might have to delete and re-add to their list to gets its correct position back. Not sure how that works exactly.


message 16: by Becky (new)

Becky B A Crack in the Sea's 1st and 2nd editions on GoodReads are listed with release dates of Oct 4, 2016. It could be this was the international release date, or it could be that this was the projected release date that was later postponed and never fixed on GoodReads. Can anyone confirm for sure that A Crack in the Sea was not released internationally before the Jan 3, 2017 US release date? (It is rare for a well-read book to not have it's predicted release date changed to actual release after over a year and thus the confusion.)


message 17: by Czechgirl (new)

Czechgirl I own the book, A Crack in the Sea. It has a 2017 publication date in it.


message 18: by Becky (new)

Becky My library copy of A Crack in the Sea also has a 2017 publication date in it.


message 19: by Becky (new)

Becky B It looks like the Oct 4, 2016 release date was changed worldwide and that was just old, wrong info left on GoodReads. I have changed all those wrong editions to reflect the correct publication date of Jan 3, 2017 so no one else gets confused again.
