Hooray for Henry and Mudge

January 23, 2006 @ 10:55 am | Filed under: Books

Cynthia Rylant’s beginning readers are fiercely loved around here by the seven-and-under crowd. Heck, make that the thirty-seven-and-under crowd. I’ve found myself chuckling over many a Mr. Putter and Tabby episode with nary a child in the room. I am, therefore, delighted to report that Cynthia’s Henry and Mudge and the Great Grandpas is the first winner of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for Beginning Readers.

The Newbery went to Criss Cross by Lynne Rae Perkins.

This year’s Caldecott Medal winner is The Hello, Goodbye Window by Norton Juster (author of The Phantom Tollbooth, illustrated by Chris Raschka.
