From the Editor - January 2023

Happy 2023! January brings New Year’s resolutions and reappearing library books; this Magazine issue with gorgeous cover art by Jason Griffin and including complete BGHB speeches; our annual at-a-glance Year in Review post (coming soon!); and LibLearnX and the ALA Youth Media Awards. But first: who do you think will...

Editorial: Safe at Home (January/February 2023)

What do you see on the cover of this issue of the Magazine? According to its creator, Jason Griffin, there are many “right” answers. Do you see a house up in the sky and above the clouds, or is it on the ground and behind them? Or is that fog?...

From the Editor - November 2022

This is our second-to-last issue of Notes for 2022; December is our Fanfare issue — our annual “best of” list — and, spoiler alert, it’s going to be great. This issue, too, is a good one, including a selection of picture books about one of our favorite subjects: stories! And...

Editorial: What She Said (November/December 2022)

Visit Hbook.com every...

Editorial: Selfless Acts (September/October 2022)

Back in the fall of 2016 many of us were together, in person, at the Linda K. Paresky Conference Center of Simmons University, celebrating the winners of the Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards. Yuyi Morales, previously an honoree for ­Georgia in Hawaii (and subsequently for Dreamers), received a Picture Book Honor...

From the Editor - August 2022

The September/October issue of the Horn Book Magazine is at press and soon to be on its way to your mailboxes (and our website). Check out the mysterious and enticing cover by Vera Brosgol, from A Spoonful of Frogs, by Casey Lyall, and you can even get a jump (ha)...

From the Editor - July 2022

Compiling these lists in the midst of a heatwave made it a little tough for the Horn Book editors to focus on back-to-school — but as the big box stores never fail to remind us: it’s right around the corner! Our annual BTS issue of Notes features a cool thirty-plus...
