Winner Description: 
Written by Deborah Hopkinson. Illus. by John Hendrix. Published by Random House/Schwartz & Wade.
Winner Blurb: 

Taking a boyhood story about Lincoln as inspiration, Hopkinson provides a lively, tongue-in-cheek telling with as many bends as Knob Creek. Hendrix’s broad, cartoony illustrations visually suggest several possible outcomes to the boys’ predicament.
