The 2010 Cybils Awards

Ms. Tess had the esteemed honor to serve as a judge for the 2010 Cybils Awards, literary awards given each year by the blogging community. She helped judge the Fiction Picture Book Category, and the winner was Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein! The official Kid's Book Blog review of Interrupting Chicken publishes tomorrow, but Tess would like to take this time to thank her fellow judges, who made the experience so wonderful, and encourage you to visit their blogs! Thank you Becky Bilby, Katie Davis, Melanie Greenberg, Danielle Smith, and our magnanimous Panel Organizer Pam Coughlan! Also, check out the other finalist books, that were so close to winning: A Beach Tail by Karen Lynn Williams, Chalk by Bill Thomson, The Cow Loves Cookies by Karma Wilson, Flora's Very Windy Day by Jeanne Birdsall, Shark Vs. Train by Chris Barton, and A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip Stead. Oh, and happy Valentines Day everybody!


  1. Oh my goodness! You are too cute Tess! Thank you so much for the shout out! I had a fantastic time on the panel with everyone and I'm really honored to have been able to share this experience with you all. Interrupting Chicken all the way! :o)

  2. Very fun! Thanks for your judging work - and great pick!

  3. Thanks, Tess.

    You were all very sweet to work with. I have strong opinions and your voices helped me to see my blindspots and to modify. All in good fun.

    My best contribution is to link all of our blurbs onto my Facebook wall.

    I am in awe of my fellow bloggers for the dedication to their craft. My blog has a quirky formula and like art it's an experiment. Currently it's for creative fun and marketing while I actively seek publishing gigs, so big thanks for the shout out.

  4. Thanks y'all! It was a pleasure serving with you!
