The Kids Are Alright...

After hundreds of thousands of votes by (at least) 20 kids, the results are in for this year's Children's Choice Awards and I'm happy to report that The Pigeon Wants a Puppy! won Book of the Year in the k-2 category. A nice way to spend Children's Book Week.

Thanks, kids! (It's double awesome when real, live kids dig my books)

And congrats to pal Jon Muth who took Illustrator of the Year. Well deserved indeed.

I'm sorry to have missed the party hosted by pal Jon Scieszka. You can see the results here.

ADDENDUM: I didn't know Jon was an illustrator. Man, am I going to miss newspapers...
