Yesterday at Harbourfront in Toronto, a few Forest of Reading winners were announced. And the category we’ve been waiting for was Red Maple. Who won? Drumroll, please…..
This was one of the funniest books available this year in this category and the one that I read most often when I visited schools to get them excited about the reading program. Our readers didn’t pick this as the winner, but we’ll have to see how well we do tomorrow when the Silver Birch categories are announced.
If you’d like to see some of the ceremony and the award itself, you can stop by the Tundra Books blog for some great photos and video. You can also check out Susin Neilsen’s blog to find out more about this great Canadian author! Thanks to all our readers for participating this year!
