Pigs Make Me Sneeze! (SLJ Best Book of 09)

The fine folks at School Library Journal (who recently gave Elephant and Piggie's Pigs Make Me Sneeze! a starred review) have now included it on their Best Books of 2009 list!

They say:

The animals’ expressions and body language are a riot, and the friends’ very real emotions are priceless.


Thanks, SLJ

Go check the list out, there are some great books in there by pals, perennial favorites, and new stars.

And thanks again to Ambassador Scieszka for the LA Times shout-out for Elephant and Piggie and many pals fabulous books. As he says, "The state of children's books? Thriving. Inspiring." To my mind he's the best Ambassador we've ever had, even if he's the only one so far...
