PW’s best children’s books include ‘Bad Machinery,’ ‘Relish’

delilahdirLagging behind the rest of its list, Publishers Weekly has released its rundown of the best children’s books — split into fiction and nonfiction — which, unsurprisingly, includes a smattering of graphic novels. They are:

Children’s Fiction
Bad Machinery: The Case of the Team Spirit, by John Allison (Oni Press)

Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, by Tony Cliff (First Second)

Boxers & Saints, by Gene Luen Yang (First Second)

Children’s Nonfiction
Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, by Lucy Knisley (First Second)

You’ll undoubtedly notice that three of the four books are from First Second, which, while it’s still early in the best-of season (sure, it’s a season), is off to a strong start: Relish and Boxers & Saints, along with Paul Pope’s Battling Boy, also made it onto the Amazon list, while Yang’s book(s) appears twice on PW’s best of 2013.

Shortlisted just last month for the National Book Award, Boxers & Saints is shaping up to be a strong contender for the big graphic novel of the year, too.
