PW's best children's books include 'Bad Machinery,' 'Relish'

Lagging behind the rest of its list, Publishers Weekly has released its rundown of the best children's books -- split into fiction and nonfiction -- which, unsurprisingly, includes a smattering of graphic novels. They are:

Children's Fiction Bad Machinery: The Case of the Team Spirit, by John Allison (Oni Press)

Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, by Tony Cliff (First Second)

Boxers & Saints, by Gene Luen Yang (First Second)

Children's Nonfiction Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, by Lucy Knisley (First Second)

You'll undoubtedly notice that three of the four books are from First Second, which, while it's still early in the best-of season (sure, it's a season), is off to a strong start: Relish and Boxers & Saints, along with Paul Pope's Battling Boy, also made it onto the Amazon list, while Yang's book(s) appears twice on PW's best of 2013.
