"The Wooden Sword" made it onto the list in the folk and fairytale section.  I really love the story, a folktale from Afghanistan, and I was so happy and amazed!  Actually, I am still happy and amazed!  Congrats to Mara and Natalie!

Congrats, Mara and Natalie!

And ... I'm on there too -- in the Younger Readers section with my chapter book Duck for a Day. I thought it was pretty cool that of 8 YR selections, 3 are by Australians. I don't have any context for these US-based bits and pieces so I never know quite what they mean, but I'm always happy to be on a list!
