    Well done, Commanders! Do you do as well with lottery numbers?

  2. DaNae says:

    Now if only the two “dancing queens*” had overruled the other Battle Commander and placed LOCOMOTIVE on the list . . .

      To date we’ve kept picture books off the contenders list thinking they’d have a hard time getting out of the first round station. That said, Locomotive was definitely one we were considering as a rule breaker!

    If only YAQUI DELGADO had made it on there, we would have had Newbery, CSK and Pura Belpre. Now will the Newbery Curse strike again?
