If I were a Newbery-winning author who was remotely superstitious, I'd be a little nervous right now. Maurice Sendak died two weeks ago, and Jean Craighead George died last week … so who's next? Seriously, though, I'd argue that these two deaths are more than just the loss of one or two icons. It's a changing of the guard in children's literature.
