Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award

by Christopher Paolini

What a thrill to hear that Eragon won the 2006 Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award! I am honored that Eragon is such a favorite with students.

Please extend my thanks to everyone who participated with this project. Enclosed is a letter to the student readers, which I hope you can share with them.

Three cheers for librarians and teachers who year after year introduce youngsters to books and encourage them to read!

With gratitude,

Christopher Paolini
