“Kate DiCamillo’s “Flora & Ulysses” has won the John Newbery Medal for the year’s best work of children’s literature. Brian Floca won the Randolph Caldecott Medal for his illustrations in “Locomotive.” The awards, the most prestigious in children’s publishing, were announced Monday by the American Library Association. DiCamillo, a popular and acclaimed author, won the Newbery a decade ago for “The Tales of Despereaux.” The Library of Congress recently named her National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature.” (via The Associated Press)
