While I was at ALA in Anaheim this weekend I was ecstatic to find out that the book I illustrated last year for Freespirit Publishing ‘ How to Talk to an Autistic Kid’ won a gold in the Foreward Reviews Book of the Year Awards, announced at ALA. And I didn’t realize till I got home!


Congratulations to Daniel Stefanski .. awesome autistic author!
In other news I found a box o’ books awaiting me when I got back to Maine. Love the colours! This is the 4th in the series of Anastasia Suen’s ‘All Star Cheerleaders’ published by Kane Miller.  

And here we are together at ALA getting ready to sign like crazy! 100 in an hour and I drew a cheerleader in EVERY one … what was I thinking??

 More on my exploits at ALA Anaheim in another post … it was exhausting and fun and exhausting and FUN!

Right now I have to finish a cover.
