2006 Award
Inkspell
(by Cornelia Funke, Scholastic $19.99 Score:) “Even better than Ink-heart!” was the report from our 11-year old reader.

The Sisters Grimm
(by Michael Buckley, Abrams Books $14.95 Score:) Two sisters, Sabrina and Daphne, are sent to live with their grandmother, Relda Grimm.

2006 Award
Operation Red Jericho
(by Joshua Mowll, Candlewick $15.99 Score:) Pull-out pages of imaginative art add to the incredible mystery adventure told in the form of a diary with sidebars, codes, and made-up photographs. Our readers found the story of two young people in search of their parents grisly at times and suspenseful at every turn, and the graphic quality of the book itself, a treasure of visual surprises. 10 & up.
