MEDIA REVIEWS
"This new edition of The Newbery/Printz Companion once again covers those books honored from award inception to date, adding also a new section on young adult literature. This is the first book to accommodate information on the annual Printz Award, first granted in 2000 and inspired by the work of American librarian, Michael Printz....The Newbery/Printz Companion clearly stands as the essential, comprehensive, and up-to-date guide to excellence in children's and young adult reading. It should have a place in every public and school library as well as academic libraries supporting education and curriculum courses." - American Reference Books Annual
