A comprehensive guide to the influential Newbery and Printz awards for children's and young adult literature, providing information on each year's winners and honor books, and on the awards themselves and the librarians for whom they are named. For each award-winning book, there is a plot summary, list of characters and themes, background on the author, incidents for booktalking, related reads, and fresh ideas for introducing the book to young readers.
