The librarian judging committee that chose the 100 books said, “Indeed, readers can be assured that there’s no shortage of creativity in the world of storytelling. The New York Public Library’s librarians invite you to peruse these offerings and find just the right stories to put in the hands of your favorite children—complete with a strong dose of imagination and a dash of whimsy.”
Janet won CWW’s 2011 Tofte/Wright Children’s Literature Award for her book Star of the Sea: A Day in the Life of a Starfish.
