The Cybils: 2006 winners

One of the things I missed while I was sick was the announcement of the winners for the 2006 Cybils (the Children's and YA Bloggers' Literary Awards). They were:

Fiction Picture Books:
Scaredy Squirrel, by Melanie Watt

Non-Fiction Picture Books:
An Egg Is Quiet, by Dianna Aston; illustrated by Sylvia Long

Middle Grade Fiction:
A Drowned Maiden's Hair, by Laura Amy Schlitz

Young Adult Fiction:
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Fantasy and Science Fiction:
Ptolemy's Gate, by Jonathan Stroud

Graphic Novels (12 and under):
Amelia Rules, vol 3: Superheroes, by Jimmy Gownley

Graphic Novels (13 and up):
American Born Chinese, by Gene Yang

Butterfly Eyes and Other Secrets of the Meadow, by Joyce Sidman; illustrated by Beth Krommes

Non-Fiction (Middle Grade and YA):
Freedom Walkers, by Russell Freedman

Haven't read any of these yet, but I'll be looking for some of them (and some of the other nominees). Actually, I was kind of disappointed that Beka Cooper: Terrier, by Tamora Pierce, didn't win the Fantasy and SF award - that's one book that I'm definitely going to be buying. (You can read the beginning of it here.)
