MD Black-Eyed Susans Winners

Congrats to this year's MD Black-Eyed Susan winners that were voted on by the students of the state of Maryland!! Even though I didn't vote (I'm too old!), a few of my favorites won. "The Day the Crayons Quit" By Drew Daywalt was a really fun book about a few complaints from the crayons of a schoolboy. "Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library" By Chris Grabenstein was also another one of my favorites. Since I work in a library I'm a little bias, but it was a great story and some really funny parts in there too. If you haven't read these books, then I encourage you to do so!

  • The Day The Crayons Quit By Drew Daywalt (Picture Book)
  • Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library By Chris Grabenstein (Grades 4-6)
  • Astronaut Academy: Zero Gravity By Dave Roman (Graphic Novels)
  • On The Day I Died: Stories From The Grave By Candace Fleming (Grades 6-9)
  • Eleanor and Park By Rainbow Rowell (High School)

Looking forward to next year...we have the 2015-2016 MD Black-Eyed Susan Nominees! This list is also copied on a page above.
