Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 Joan Betty Stuchner — Oy Vey! — Funniest Children’s Book Award!

Aidan Cassie for Sterling, Best Dog Ever (Farrar, Strauss and Giroux Books for Young Readers):

“Aidan Cassie’s Sterling, Best Dog Ever, is a heartwarming and hilarious debut picture book for dog lovers about a dog in search of a forever family. Sterling the dog has always wanted a home. But no home has ever wanted him. So when Sterling sees a sign on the side of the Butlery Cutlery Company advertising free ‘shipping to homes around the world’, he is determined to become the most terrific fork ever! For what home doesn’t need flatware? Sterling is delivered on time and undamaged to the Gilbert family’s front door. He is not, however, what they ordered. But he may be exactly what they need. Here is a humorous, heart-tugging picture book about finding a family who wants you just as you are.”

& Cary Fagan for Mort Ziff is Not Dead (Penguin Random House Canada):

A humorous coming-of-age middle-grade novel set in 1960s Florida. Battling obxious siblings, sunburns, and a corporate millionaire, Norman is determined to help an old comedian save his career.”
