February 2009 - Cybils Award Finalists

In February we discussed Cybils award finalists  To narrow things down (because as much as we'd like too, we couldn't discuss ALL the Cybil's finalists in one night), we decided to stick with books with illustrations so we selected the finalists for fiction picture books, non-fiction picture books, and graphic novels for early/middle grade readers. 

Here's the complete list:
