50 Burning Questions Wins Information Book Award

We're very proud to learn that the the winner of the Vancouver Children's Literature Roundtable's 2011 Information Book Award is 50 Burning Questions by Tanya Lloyd Kyi, illustrated by Ross Kinnaird.

But wait, there's more! The Honour Book is Fatty Legs by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret Pokiak-Fenton, illustrated by Liz Amini-Holmes.

The Information Book Award is given to a book that "arouses interest, stimulates curiosity, captures the imagination and fosters concern for the world around us." (More criteria here.) The winners were announced on November 15, and they will be presented with their award on February 25, 2012, at the Roundtable's annual Serendipity event.

Congratulations again to the winners and finalists!
