NEW YORK — In a field that featured superstars such as Veronica Roth, Rick Riordan and Jeff Kinney, the winner of the Children's Choice Book Award for author of the year was a brand name of a different kind: Rush Limbaugh.

The conservative commentator won Wednesday night for his best-selling "Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims."

Nominees are determined by how many copies their books sell, but winners are picked by kids, who vote online. The awards were presented by the Children's Book Council, a nonprofit trade association.

Roth's "Allegiant," the finale of her blockbuster "Divergent" series, won the award for best book for teens.
