Thanks for the nomination, Kelly! "Marvelous Mattie" should go to the "Non-fiction (Picture Books)" category.

Isaac Newton, by Kathleen Krull

I'd like to nominate Into the Woods by Lyn Gardner. I don't know if its eligible as it has only been published in England so far by David Fickling books. It is for 8-12 years olds and it has got everything you would want in a book including scary wolves, rats, a terrifying villian, a child guzzling ogre and a really strong and fearless heroine called Storm Eden. It is also written by my mum, but I don't think that makes me biased because all the children who have read this book love it too. It looks beautiful too as it has fantastic illustraions by Mini Grey.

oops I think I should have put this in middle grade fiction.

I would like to nominate One Kingdom by Deborah Noyes. This was written for the YA market but I love it as much as my children. I appreciate how she has mixed history, lore and facts together and presented it in a readable format. The photos are amazing. Was impressed that the author was also the photographer. I am awed.
