2010 Award
I Feel Better with a Frog in My Throat
( by Carlyn Beccia, Houghton Mifflin $17 Score: )

Kids of a certain age love being grossed out and this is one of the best of that genre because it isn't merely yucky, it is full of fascinating information about old and gross sounding cures that have been used through the ages. It is set up in a true false format asking readers to speculate on the effectiveness of rubbing moldy bread on your leg, putting mustard on your head or tying earthworms around your neck. The art is as gross out as the ideas of using mummy powder or a dead manís skull or maggots to cure what ails you. A thought provoking book that combines science and history in a picturebook for older readers. 7 & up.
