Midnight's Children Is Best of the Booker

Or should that be Midnight’s Children are Best of the Booker? I never can figure out the Queen’s English. From the Beeb (“Rushdie Wins Best of Booker prize“):

It is the third Booker award for the author, who was also the winner of the Booker of Bookers in 1993.

“Marvellous news – I’m absolutely delighted and would like to thank all those readers around the world who voted for Midnight’s Children,” the author said.

His sons, Zafar and Milan, were in attendance at the award ceremony at London’s South Bank Centre to receive the custom-made trophy.

“It’s a wonderful alternative to have my real children accepting the prize on behalf of my imaginary children,” Sir Salman said.
