Send your pictures of the week to

School Library Journal and the Battle of the Kids’ Books (BOB) team (Monica Edinger, Roxanne Feldman, and Jonathan Hunt) are ramping up for this year’s March Madness-type online competition taking place from March 10 to April 2. Once again, director of art and production Mark Tuchman’s quirky illustrations will be enhancing the tournament’s design, from a downloadable PDF poster to keep track of each bout’s outcome to anthropomorphized representations of each literary contestant. Here’s a sampling of what’s to come. Contenders will begin to be announced on January 15.
