2010 Scott O'Dell Award for Children's Historical Fiction Announced

The 2010 Scott O'Dell Award for children's historical fiction has been announced. The winner is author Matt Phelan's graphic novel The Storm in the Barn.

This is the story of a young boy in Kansas during the worst of the Dust Bowl era, around 1937. It's partly a family story and partly a coming of age story with a bit of fantasy thrown in.

Take a look at this one. It deserves the award medal.
