From the ABA's Bookselling this week, via The Dreaming Website -- we learn that the nominees for Booksense Children's Book of the Year are


Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident, by Eoin Colfer, Hyperion
Coraline, by Neil Gaiman, HarperCollins
Hoot, by Carl Hiaasen, Knopf
Summerland, by Michael Chabon, Miramax
The Thief Lord, by Cornelia Funke, Chicken House/Scholastic

which is good company to be in.
