Gaiman wins Newbery Award

Neil Gaiman has won a John Newbery Medal.

The Graveyard Book has received the highest award for children's literature from the American Library Association this week.

Although Gaiman says on his blog that it's not a children's book, The Graveyard Book tells the story of a baby boy who survives his family's assassination, to be raised by a werewolf, a witch and a vampire, and was partly inspired by Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book.
