Carnegie and Greenaway shortlists

The shortlists for the U.K.'s Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals have been announced (Michelle Pauli reports for the Guardian. Link via Michele at Scholar's Blog.)

I've done some linking for y'all and some research as to U.S. publication. All but one of the picture books have also been published in the U.S. (and the eighth is forthcoming in August), while only two of the Carnegie novels will be published here in the near future.
