will be announced, one every weekday, starting this Wednesday, February 6th. And they are awesome! Just wait and see.
What a tease!
Any guesses? (Hint: all new judges. None have done this before.)
Has Gary Schmidt? I think he has, because I believe he might have broken my heart. I will need to go back and check.
I know you mostly use authors, but you did use Anita Silvy once. The Children’s Lit expert I would love to hear from is K.T. Horning. I’m just saying.
Also, Jane Yolen is due!
How about Jack Gantos and Matt de la Pena, please, please, please.
Or, or, or Laurie Halse Anderson! Yes, yes, yes!
I could play this game all day but I have work to do, so . . .
N.D. Wilson? Mac Barnett?
All new judges! Wow, I wish I weren’t too lazy to double check all the years.
Let’s see, some of my favorites of course have books this year. I’ll think about the also-rans and last year’s contestants:
Megan Whalen Turner?
Now if you’d given us a few more clues….
Ooo, I want James Kennedy! The Unorthodox Newbery winner….
Hm, not Adam Rex, he’s done it before.
Will there be the same kid commentators this year? please bring back the ones from last year, i absolutely adored GI and the other one whos initials i do not remember! i would love to read more from them.
Sondy’s got 3 and Genevieve 1. (Some of your guesses have already been judges.) And, Ellen, we hope to have both of last year’s Kid Commentators back along with some new ones.
Zen-like, I await the announcements.
Also, thank you for these lists because they are giving us ideas for future judges!
My last batch of guesses! Hoping to get at least another one.
Jessica Day George
Sorry, delete Philip Hoose (I forgot he wrote Moonbird!) and Candace Fleming (already on Sondy’s list).
How about Nikki Grimes and Patricia Wrede instead?
Sorry, Genevieve, but no to all of them:) But we’ve definitely tried to get some of them — we always aim for the sky!
