The Great Big Terrible Horrible Owl-Scrunching Pencey Prep Final

Are you a writer for children? A kid lit fan? A children's librarian? Then you should know your books for the younger set, right? Right? You should be up on all the "classics" and the contemporary must-reads, yes? Am I right or am I right? I'm right, right? Am I annoying you yet? Good.

We can spend all day discussing award winners, the slush, and everything in between, but I feel we should all have a certain amount of general kidlit knowledge. I bet you're on top of things. I bet books have always been your very best friend. So, take a deep breath and plunge in, Smarty. Let's see how much you know. No Googling allowed!
