What a happy surprise it was for me to get a call from my good friend (and fabulous picture book author) Kari-Lynn Winters last week; well, whenever Kari calls it is a happy surprise, but this time even more so.
Because she called bearing some great news! The Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) picked Kendra Kandlestar and the Shard from Greeve as one of the best Canadian books for kids and teens 2010 and Kari had just picked up a copy of the magazine, hot off the press.
I now have my own copy of the magazine, and to my pleasant surprise found several of my friends also listed in this magazine as well, many of whom I have taught with at various writing camps, classes and conferences.
Rachelle Delaney is listed for her middle-grade book, The Ships of Lost Souls.
Adrienne Kress is listed for her middle-grade book, Timothy and the Dragon’s Gate.
Congratulations to all!
