The nominees for the 2018 HCAA:


I've been trying to find more works by Cao Wenxuan who won the last author prize in 2016. Archipelago's putting out a picture book of his, and I see two other titles available in German not in English:



https://www.amazon.de/Das-Grashaus-Literatur-%C3%BCber-China/dp/3943314332/ref=sr_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1493307126&sr=1-8&keywords=Cao+Wenxuan (which is a horrendous cover. seriously, go browse his amazon page. the chinese ones are delightful; this is pathetic.)

Sweden has also put out a new one, http://www.bokus.com/bok/9789186589615/rok/

Inexplicably, there is a new English book not available in other languages, http://www.theworldofchinese.com/store/gift-2/the-amber-tiles/ but this seems unavailable for purchase both on the website and anywhere else online. I do not understand.

I did find this terrific blog by two great translators and one librarian about Chinese children's books! https://chinesebooksforyoungreaders.wordpress.com/home/

EDIT: And thanks to the blog, I found what looks like a pile of Cao's books coming out! https://hillary-fee.squarespace.com/twinkling-books#smoke

edit 2: ok, awesome blog again, https://chinesebooksforyoungreaders.wordpress.com/2017/03/21/bronze-and-sunflower-now-available-in-the-usa-and-canada/ So looks like a lot of Cao will be flooding my shelves. http://product.dangdang.com/1035756760.html seriously, 59 yuan for four books? that's like $9.
