(Publisher’s Weekly, Feb. 9)

Neil Gaiman won the Newbery Medal last month for The Graveyard Book, which was already on our bestseller charts; now it takes the #1 position (for Children’s Fiction Bestsellers).  When PW asked Gaiman how it felt to become the new Miss America of children’s literature, he laughed in response.  “There is definitely this sense of responsibility, the sort of thing where I keep thinking I really mustn’t rob a bank this year,” he said.  “The news headline would inevitably be ‘Newbery Winner Robs Bank.’  I have to stay away from Ponzi schemes, too.”
