Winner Description: 
by Donna Jo Napoli. Simon & Schuster/Atheneum.
Winner Blurb: 

In the late 1200s in rat-infested Hameln, Germany, a young boy with a terrible disease (cystic fibrosis) meets the piper.   Stark and full of vivid imagery of a disease-infested landscape, this book is incredibly addictive.  Napoli based this story on events that truly happened and cleverly manipulates them with the tale of the pied piper.  Rats take the blame for everything.
