Kirkus Reviews’ annual “Best Books for Children and Teens” has come out, and Hereville is listed as a “Best” in THREE categories — “Graphic Novel,” “Fantasy and Science Fiction,” and “Fiction With Great Girl Characters.”
Within the book industry, Kirkus has a reputation for being very tough reviewers, so these listings mean a lot.
Congratulations to all the other Kirkus “best” listees as well! It’s an honor to be in company like this. I’ll single out three folks I’m lucky enough to have met in real life: Tom Angleberger for The Strange Case of Origami Yoda (another triple listee! And a book with an even more unique premise than Hereville’s), Raina Telgemeier for Smile , and Hope Larson for Mercury!
