If you still haven't had your fill of discussing last year's books, or if you can't wait until next year's Newbery season, School Library Journal has a treat in store for you.

The third annual Battle of the Kids' Books will pit sixteen books against one another in a tournament to the death. Each round is judged by one of the luminaries of children's literature, including Susan Patron, Richard Peck, and Grace Lin.

The first match takes place on March 14, so head on over and cheer for your favorites.
