Matt de la Pena wins Newbery

Last Stop on Market St.Matt de la Pena, whose YA novel The Living was discussed on Hogpro previously, as been awarded the Newbery Medal for his picture book, Last Stop on Market Street. He is the first Hispanic author so honored.  I haven’t read the book yet, but I’ll have to put in on my list.

As well as getting around to reviewing The Living‘s sequel, The Hunted.

Congratulations, Matt!  Score another for the psych majors!
