  1. My dark horse would be THe False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen. I don't think it has a shot, however I offer up two words that fuel my hope: The Thief.

  2. I'm thinking "Extra Yarn" as another possible for Caldecott. Oh, and maybe "Looking for Lincoln."

    I'll tell you, I do not get the Caldecott level love for "Green." I feel like I am missing something there.

    Newbery thoughts, "Wonder" and "The One and Only Ivan." We'll see soon enough!
