And the winner is....

The Princess and the Pony wins the 2016 Children's Choice Illustrator.  Yes, Kate Beaton won the hearts of children world-wide, including the hearts of children at the Roselle Public Library.  The Princess and the Pony was our choice for favorite illustrator too!

Not only is Kate the illustrator of the book but she is also the author too!  How cool is she to be doubly talented!

If you haven't checked this book out yet, you need to.  Princess Pinecone totally knows what she wants for her birthday this year - a horse!  She is a princess warrior so of course she needs a trusty steed, big and strong.  But her parents don't quite see it that way and get her a pony instead.  You'll have to read the book to see how that works out for her (but I think you will enjoy the ending and the stomach issues of the pony).  

Check out other past winners from the  Children's Choice Book Awards in all the categories.  There are some great titles nominated and with summer reading getting closer, why not begin compiling your list?  You'll be glad that you did!
