Last week I set up a blog poll asking who would win this year's Older Readers category of the CBCA Book of the Year awards. The participation numbers weren't huge (fourteen, to be precise) but a clear winner emerged. Here they are, in actual vote numbers.
Anthony Eaton: 7
Shaun Tan: 3
Melina Marchetta: 2
DM Cornish: 1
Jackie French: 1
James Moloney: 0
As I say, it's not a huge sample group, but the result is clear enough for Tony Eaton to almost certainly claim 'kissee-of-death' status. In fact, he already has.
The new poll is now up - it's the turn of the Younger Readers category.
