New News, New Year, New Venues!

Good news to start off the new year. A cabal of bloggers have gotten it in their minds to cheer their favorite books with an award, called the Cybil, after Cybil Shepard, a famous children's book enthusiast and actual shepherd, which is cool in its own way*.

Any-hoo, two Elephant and Piggies have made it onto the list of Easy Reader Finalists, which means that not only are they in very good company (Kate DiCamillo anyone?), but also that for the first time I have the opportunity to lose a single award twice.**

Next week kicks off the Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed Tour. Check out the post as new venues have been added. I hope to see you if you're in the neighborhood.

2009. So far so good...

*not really...

**All kidding aside, there's nothing nicer than being recognized by such passionate fans and advocates.
