I absolutely adored Once Was Lost- it was one of my very favorite YA reads of the past year.

I love reading lists of what people are reading.

I love reading lists of what people are reading. Some great ones here, LW! I missed the Lobel book and I'm a fan, so thanks for making me aware of it.

Happy 2010, Little Willow!

Those are awesome choices! I love Frog and Toad and Judy Moody, especially.
