More winners..!

I know we're all aflutter over the Newbery and Caldecott announcements today, but did you know that the American Indian Library Association also named award winners today?? The American Indian Youth Literature Awards were created "to identify and honor the very best writing and illustrations by and about American Indians".

Winner for Best Picture Book is A Coyote Solstice Tale by Thomas King, illustrated by Gary Clement.

Winner for Best Middle School Book is Meet Christopher: An Osage Indian Boy from Oklahoma by Genevieve Simermeyer, photographs by Katherine Fogden.

Winner for Best Young Adult Book is Between the Deep Blue Sea and Me by Lurline Wailana McGregor.

Thanks to @debreese for the link! You'll want to follow her blog, American Indians in Children's Literature, if you're not already.

Has anybody not connected with the awards read the Coyote one? I'm looking at the Barnes and Noble description, and it just sounds...odd. can't decide if I should order it or not.
