Hans Christian Andersen Award

andersen_02I was so pumped up about that Forbes article this morning that I forgot to post the exciting news that author David Almond from the United Kingdom and illustrator Jutta Bauer from Germany are the winners of the 2010 Hans Christian Andersen Award, sponsored by the International Board on Books for Young People. The news came yesterday from the Bologna Book Fair. The award is given biennally, and winners are chosen by an international committee of jurors.
