Are Brits More Into Blurbs?

Following up on yesterday's blurb discussion, I was struck by the Top Ten Series hosted across the Atlantic by the Guardian, where "authors choose their favourite books on their chosen theme."

Focusing on children's literature, authors like Joanne Harris and Meg Rosoff have shared their ten favorite kids' books with kick-ass heroines (Harris) or adult books for teens (Rosoff).

Does anybody know of a similar "authors' favorite children's books" resource here in the States that's more current than the (interesting) features at Salon, Great Schools, Cynsations, or Education World?
