DRUM ROLL, PLEASE! You voted and voted and voted and voted…in fact, you all voted 8,643 times! That is a RECORD-SETTING number of votes in the Tournament of Books! Thank you for voting so often, and a special thank you to all of the wonderful DPS 109 school librarians for helping their students vote.

Oh, did you want to know which books won? Without further ado, the winners are:

In Picture Books versus Early Readers, The Book with No Pictures was a HUGE winner over the Elephant & Piggie series! (It wasn’t even close, so you must really love hearing that robot monkey voice!) In Chapter Books versus Comic Books, the Dog Man series was the winner by a small margin over the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. And in our Teen Tournament, The Hunger Games beat Divergent.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s competition. There will be some exciting changes, so get ready for the new and improved 6th annual Tournament of Books!
