The project has just been honored as World Magazine's 2014 Children's Book of the Year and announced in the publication's August 9th issue.

"Our selection committee members were considering several worthy titles when I received a copy of The Warden and the Wolf King," explains Janie B. Cheaney, Senior Writer at World Magazine. "Within a hundred pages or so, I realized that this was a real contender for World's 2014 Children's Book of the Year. Once they had a chance to read it, the committee agreed; our final vote was all but unanimous. Warden combines engaging characters, thrilling action, humor, and virtue in a cracking good story."
