Travel Day and Good News

We’ll be flying over the Atlantic about the time this post appears but I wanted to share some good news. The book I was honored to co-author with my dear friend, Mary Nethery,

Two Bobbies: A True Story of Hurricane Katrina, Friendship and Survival, was recently announced as the winner of the 2008 Henry Bergh ASPCA award, for nonfiction. This tops a month of lovely news about the book: a 2009 IRA Teachers Choice Award and a nomination for the Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award for 2009-2010.

The best prize of all, however, is captured by this photo:
Our good friend, Jim, reading Sam’s new favorite book to him!

We love our readers!
