I love it! The only one I've read is Another Brother. And I've only heard of three others.

What a great idea. We should start a trend. Have nominations. Have judges. A special day. The whole bit!

Joanne Fritz said...

So clever and funny! I'm familiar with all of these books, and I have to agree with you. But you left out the Black Belt Award for Best Porcine Martial Arts Characters!

Laura Renauld said...

Fabulous! Thanks for my new "to read" list (I've only seen half of these!) Boy + Bot is a fave of my boys as well.

Brianna Caplan Sayres said...

Corey, this is ABsolutely adorable! It really made me smile (which, when you've had the flu all week, is a monumentous feat!). And you made me more aware of picture books I WASn't aware of :) Yay!

You know, I was just looking at a list of the Oscar categories and there are a couple that may lend to this: "Best Documentary" could work for something with non-fiction maybe?; "Best Costume Design" maybe for outfits (I think "Fancy Nancy" or "Olivia" types?); "Best Art Direction" could be for illustration overall maybe?; "Best Visual Effects" could maybe be for very unique illustration effects?

Anyway, I think Christie Wright Wild is right...this should become a "thing" :) And I'm not into awards, generally speaking, but since this isn't "official," I think it would be fun :) I bet you'd end up with TONS of hits on your blog!
