School Library Journal's Battle of the Kids' Books

This battle 'is a competition between 16 of the very best books for young people published in 2008, judged by some of the biggest names in children's books.'

The first round judges are a stunning array: Roger Sutton, Jon Scieszka, Elizabeth Partridge, Meg Rosoff, Rachel Cohn, Ellen Wittlinger, Tamora Pierce and Ann Brashares.

Tender Morsels is up against Philip Reeve's Here Lies Arthur, in the fourth match, which happens this week.

It would be nice not to go out in the first round. Fingers crossed.
