Cybils Folks, Please Help

I nominated Atinuke’s No. 1 Car Spotter which recently was published in the U. S. by Kane/Miller.  Now I see the following on the Cybils site:


No. 1 Car Spotter
By Atinuke Atinuke
Status: Pending Approval
Reason ineligible: Publication date prior to Awards Cycle (September 2010)
Nominated by: Monica Edinger

I’m confused because the above is a link to the U.K. edition which did indeed publish in 2010.  But the U.S. edition published within the Awards Cycle and I can’t see anything in the rules that indicate that a book is not eligible if it was first published in another country. But perhaps I’m missing something?

Thanks for your help here!

  1. Monica, I’m having someone track down what happened. Thanks for alerting us.


    • Thanks, Anne. It now occurs to me that when I went to find the ISBN for the nomination I went for the first link I found which must have been the amazon UK edition one instead of the US one.


      • That must be what happened. We found the correct edition and I expect you’ll see the book either today or tomorrow, listed all fine and dandy. Thanks again.


  2. Hi Monica – The ISBN was indeed the problem! That is my navigator for sources and when I went to WorldCat, Amazon, AR Bookfind, LC catalog, et al. I kept getting “Walker, 2010.” There was only one reference to a 2011 Walker version and I went with the majority records.

    I have now moved it to Eligible. If you have any other questions, feel free to drop me a line …
