    Thank you judge. It was an honor to be a picture book finalist. I posted the list of finalists on my blog as well to spread the word.


    I was on the picture book committee that send the books your way, and it was a pleasure to put this book on the short list. It's one of my favorites. (Though with Knuffle Bunny Too in the nominations, it would be Wrong for me to say that it is my one and only favorite.)

    Great job in selecting an awesome book!


    I can't wait to read this one with my kids. Great job!

    Thanks, Natasha, for stopping by. "Go To Bed, Monster" was a wonderful book, too!

    Vivian and MR, thanks for the nice words. It was a very intense experience to narrow down and decide.

    I find it so interesting that my favorites were so very child centered--one of the best things about CCQ. I find it funny because I tend to create books that are NOT child centered, per se, although I do have two stories that are about to be shopped around by my agent that actually ARE first person, kid narrated. Something different for me--creating out of my comfort zone, so to speak.

    We'll see how it goes. Another project of mine is not at all--more adult.

    In the end, it is all very enjoyable to discuss and contemplate....

    Lucky you to get all those books! I love the palette in this one, the animation of the character, and the cool graphic elements. They all work towards the whole.
