Let’s get ready to RUMBLE!

Ding ding ding! That’s right, folks — it’s time for the 2010 Battle of the Books over at School Library Journal!* If you missed it last year, DO NOT make that mistake again. It’s a truly awesome competition between 16 big-deal kids’ books, as judged by 15 big-name authors.

For the full scoop, check out this informative yet hilarious announcement video:

HA HA HA HA! What’s up with the zombie lion? Giggle. Snigger. Snort.

Anyhoo… head over to the Battle of the Books site to see this year’s brackets.** And vote in their Undead Poll, which will determine which eliminated book will rise from the grave for one last chance in the final round of competition.

The battle begins on March 15th. See you ringside!
