So I recorded Amazon’s Sales figures for some titles that might conceivably win the Caldecott and the Newbery. And today I’ve monitored the #’s on the lst place medal winners. Here’s how things are stacking up. Or should I say falling down?!
Then Invention of Hugo Cabret won the Caldecott for illustration.
Good Masters, Sweet Ladies! won Newbery for the most distinguished contribution to children's literature.
Last night 9:00
The Invention of Hugo Cabret - # 266
Good Masters, Sweet Ladies - # 14,144
The Invention of Hugo Cabret - # 32
Good Masters, Sweet Ladies - # 17
That's getting mighty close to # 1! At least two authors are having a very fine day!
And congratulations to them!
