2007 Cybils Finalists!



The Cybils nominating panel has made their decisions! After reviewing and sorting through over 100 Fiction Picture Book nominations the team whittled down the selection to the following titles. Now it's time for us judges to get to work! I'm am thrilled to find among the finalists a few titles I was secretly rooting for, a couple I have only seen from afar and had planned on picking up, and even a couple that I hadn't seen yet, but find very intriguing! Good luck to all the finalists. We have a tough job ahead, and I can't wait to get started!
