Harry Potter was able to disarm Mo Willem’s pigeon, taking the top spot in the 2014 ICPL Book Madness Children’s Bracket. It was a close race between The Chosen One and the mischievous bird, but the final round of voting had a clear winner.
We will give the pigeon a cookie, with nuts, as a consolation prize.
In the Teens and Adults bracket, Harper Lee’s classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, defeated Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Several weeks ago, we asked our Facebook friends to name a book they had to read in school and ended up loving, and most responses listed To Kill a Mockingbird. Take heart, English teachers. Your students still love that book.
Thank you so much for participating in our first ever Book Madness! We can’t wait to do it again next year!
