[ | | ]
Upon learning that his The Graveyard Book (listen to it free here) had just won the John Newbery Medal, widely considered the most prestigious award for children's literature in the United States, he posted the following messages to his twitter feed:
About to drink second cup of tea without Marmalade this morning. Also, I just won the Newbury Medal for THE GRAVEYARD BOOK....

Newbery, not Newbury. Also FUCK!!!! I won the FUCKING NEWBERY THIS IS SO FUCKING AWESOME. I thank you.
He posted a followup blog post in which he described his most amusing experience of the announcement.

If you haven't read The Graveyard Book, I highly recommend it.
