Some of The Guardian’s titles that made the best lists for 2018 are USA born and others UK. There’s a rehash of ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’ on the list and a new Jacqueline Wilson title. Other familiar names include one of my favorites, Hilary McKay (‘The Skylark’s War’). David Almond also has a title on the list (‘The Colour of the Sun’). The Guardian includes a section on the best children’s poetry books of 2018, a category most USA lists ignore.
