Costa Children's Book Award

Linda Newbery's Set in Stone has won the Costa Children's Book Award.

Here's what the judges had to say about Set in Stone: "As beautifully crafted as one of the statues adorning the house in the story, this emotionally charged narrative will thrill all lovers of intelligent fiction." (via BBC)

I just handed this title off to my mother to review, so watch for a review next week.
