Moon Over Manifest
by Clare Vanderpool


Winner of the 2011 Newbery Medal


The movement of the train rocked me like a lullaby. I closed my eyes to the dusty countryside and imagined the sign I’d seen only in Gideon’s stories: Manifest—A Town with a rich past and a bright future.
 
Powerful in its simplicity and rich in historical detail, Clare Vanderpool’s debut is a gripping story of loss and redemption.

A Sick Day for Amos McGee

Philip Christian Stead

Winner of the 2011 Randolph Caldecott Medal

THE BEST SICK DAY EVER and the animals in the zoo feature in this striking picture book debut.

“Observant readers will notice tiny surprises hidden in plain sight: a red balloon, a tiny mouse and sparrow popping up here and there in the story.
