2011 Golden Kite Awards for Children's Books

The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) has announced the 2011 winners and honorees of the Golden Kite Award and the Sid Fleischman Award for Humor.  The Golden Kite is awarded to books published the previous year and is unique in having the winning authors and illustrators chosen by their peers.  The Sid Fleischman Award honors a work of humor for children, a category often overlooked by other children's award committees. The winners will be feted at an awards ceremony and luncheon on Sunday, August 7th during the annual SCBWI Conference on Writing and Illustrating for Children.

Here are the 2011 winners and honorees:
