2015 USBBY Outstanding International Book List announced

Each year, the United States Board of Books for Young People (USBBY) compiles its Outstanding International Books List of books that, while published or distributed in the U.S., originated or were first published outside of the USA. These books are "deemed most outstanding of those published" in the previous year and, not surprisingly, a number of Canadian books have earned this honour.
