Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards!
Some VERY exciting news: SMILE was recently named as an Honor Book in the 2010 Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards for Excellence in Children’s Literature!! This is the first time a graphic novel has made it onto the list, and I'm extremely humbled to share the short list with such an amazing group of talented authors. You can read the full press release here.
I'll be traveling up to Boston in October for the awards ceremony, and look forward to meeting and congratulating the other winners and honorees!
