And the Best Children's Book of the past 10 years will be...?

So Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is up for a battle of which book was the Best Children's Book of the past decade. The other competitors are:
  • "Mr. Stink" by David Williams
  • "Alex Rider Skeleton Key" by Anthony Horowitz
  • "Candy Floss" by Jacqueline Wilson
  • "Horrid Henry and the Football Fiend" by Francesca Simon
  • "A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Austere Academy" by Lemony Snicket
  • "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" by Jeff Kinney
  • "Private Peaceful" by Michael Morpurgo
  • "Silver Fin" by Charlie Higson
  • "Theodore Boone" by John Grisham
Call me old but the only books I've heard of in that list is (ofc) Harry Potter, A Series of Unfortunate Events and Alex Rider, and out of the three of them, I think, Harry Potter would easily win. It's also for the fans to vote at this website (gotta sign up first though).

But seriously, if the fans can vote, what other result would you get except HP as a victor? I haven't heard anything about those other books having such devoted fans ;)
