The votes are in! The Red Clover Award winner for the state is Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton. In this humorous story, four friends use their wits to try to capture an elusive bird in their nets. It was Cabot's winner, too.
The Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award state winner is El Deafo by Cece Bell. In this semi-autobiographical graphic novel, a girl - in the form of a rabbit - loses her hearing and must use an awkward Phonic Ear as a hearing aid. Cabot kids' winning DCF title was Ice Dogs, a gripping Alaskan survival story by Terry Lynn Johnson.
Stay tuned for a DCF mystery event scheduled in the library for early June.
