Every bit as delightful as the first book.

I would venture perhaps more delightful than the first! If Savvy hadn't already won a Newbery Honor, I would think that Scumble had a fighting chance. However, since it is written in a similar manner (in a good way) to Savvy can it stand up to the criteria of distinct and distinguished? Hmm.... I'd like to see it on a short list so the above can be discussed.
