So far there’s only one drawback to being on the Geisel Award Committee. Mostly, it is great. You get to intensively study a particular area of children’s literature for a year, and how children interract with it. Fun stuff for someone like me.
There is a drawback, though, and that is, when I get a really wretchedly awful horrible no excuse for its existence book that fits into the potential Geisel Award category, I can’t blog about it. Sad.
