Ohio Kids Love Monster Hug!

Happy Spring,

I just found out Monster Hug! (Putnam, 2007) has been nominated for the Buckeye Book Award. School children in Ohio do the nominating, so it truly is a people's-choice type of award. Way to go Monster Hug!

I feel like my books are my children, and MH!, ya done me proud. True it's up against four very fine books in the k-2 category. But just being nominated is great—it means kids all over Ohio will be reading the book so they can vote for a winner.

Read about the award and nominees here.

See you under the buckeye tree,
