The winners of the this year’s Comstock-Gág Read Aloud Book Awards were announced last Friday at Jefferson Elementary School in Fargo, ND and among the titles honored with an official 2017 Comstock-Gág Read Aloud Honor was Disney-Hyperion’s own Rules of The House written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Matthew Myers.
The Comstock Read Aloud Book Award, is an annual award for the best read aloud picture book for older children (ages 9-12). This award is named for the Comstock Family, an important pioneer family in Moorhead, Minnesota.
Rules of The House debuted last spring from the New York Times best-selling team of Mac Barnett and Matthew Myers and is one hilarious tale of sibling rivalry, moral complexity, and disgruntled monsters, perfect for sharing with your own favorite rulebreakers. Since it’s release it has earned four starred reviews from Kirkus Magazine, Booklist, School Library Connection, and The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books. Congratulations to all of this year’s Comstock-Gág Read Aloud winners and honorees we are thrilled to be included in such great company.
