Horn Book Fanfare List: Best Books of 2015

Welcome to Horn Book Fanfare! Chosen annually by our editors, Fanfare is The Horn Book Magazine’s selection of the best children’s and young adult books of the year. This year’s list includes: a quietly action-filled picture book about . . . waiting. Two mice of very few (but well-chosen) words. A handful of books without any words. A teenager building an invisible helicopter. Another experiencing a haunted island. Killer wasps and killer ballerinas. A cozy Nordic detective story starring a toad. And nonfiction about historical whistle-blowers, contemporary tragedy, medical breakthroughs, and Winnie-the-Pooh’s backstory.
