We swept the finals.  Get it? Swept? Sww.. any-hoo...

Here are some nice things that happened/reported since the holidays:

After a week off for xmas, Knuffle Bunny Free returns to the NYTimes Bestseller list at #9!

 Speaking of Knuffle Bunny Free,  The Ashville Citizen Times has a lovely review of Trixie's final adventure, which also spent this week at #11 on the Indie Bound Bestseller list.  Turns out, the San Francisco Chronicle likes it too.

Thanks to the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio for naming City Dog, Country Frog as a 2010 Platinum book and Elephant and Piggie's We Are in a Book! a Gold seal.

Scripps Howard thinks that the Cat the Cat series, City Dog, Country Frog and Elephant and Piggie's We Are in a Book! are among last year's best books. The Bee, San Diego Union,  Chicago Tribune, and Pittsburg Post Gazette think City Dog, Country Frog is. Salt Lake City's Deseret News agrees and adds Cat the Cat's What's Your Sound Hound the Hound? to their top 5.

The Wausau Daily Herald likes City Dog, Country Frog and Knuffle Bunny Free.
