Australia's Best, 2007

Australia's Children's Book Council announced its "Book of the Year" short lists. Margo Lanagan seems to make the roster every year; her story collection Red Spikes is included in the "Older Readers" section. Another title that sounds intriguing is All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome, by Kathy Hoopmann, in the "Information Books" category. The web site of the CBC of Australia also features annotated lists of 91 notable books. (news via Original Content)

Another great find for me... thanks for pointing out "All Cats Have Aspergers." Our son has Aspergers, and so, perhaps, do our cats. I look forward to reading this

You're welcome, Natalie. It sounds really interesting, doesn't it? Let me know if you get a hold of it and read it! I am going to look for it, too, although I don't know if the book has a US publisher.
