Picture5

Hot off the presses: the nominees for the 2015-2016 Sasquatch Award, the chapter book award for grades 3-6 in Washington State, have just been announced!

  • Jinx by Sage Blackwood
  • Star Wars: Jedi Academy by Jeffrey Brown
  • Serafina’s Promise by Ann E. Burg
  • Monster on the HIll by Rob Harrell
  • The Great Trouble by Deborah Hopkinson
  • One for the Murphy’s by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
  • The Thing About Luck by Cynthia Kadohata
  • The Adventures of a South Pole Pig by Chris Kurtz
  • The 14 Fibs of Gregory K. by Greg Pincus
  • Rump by Liesl Shurtliff
  • The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud
  • The Prairie Thief by Melissa Wiley

Each year, a group of dedicated librarians read dozens of books and deliberate for hours to decide the twelve nominees for grades 3-6.  Such a tough job…and such fun, too (spoken as a former committee member!).

Nicely done, colleagues! So proud of the hard work you put in over the last year.  And so excited to read (and reread) the nominees.  Amazon/University Bookstore, here I come.
