Here, There, and Everywhere: The United States Board on Books for Young People cites 40 international books for its 2011 honor list
I'm always interested in this list because I know I'll see titles that I've missed and want to read. This year I've seen/know about maybe half the titles. One of my favorite titles of last year is The 10 PM Question.
I couldn't help noticing that several titles are published by Groundwood. And that the majority of titles are from Canadian and British publishers. And there are few titles by the mega mainsteam publishers. If I had more time I'd look into this a bit more.
