Jonathan Bean: Illustrator Extraordinaire
Looking at Henry Holt's catalogue page I discovered that Mokie and Bik had won two awards I hadn't heard about: Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year;and CCBC Choice (Univ. of WI). What a lovely surprise!

I've just discovered that most of my emails have been blocked from November 23 till today. (I wondered why I was getting so few!) So, if you've emailed me, or posted a comment here that hasn't been accepted, please try again. I try to answer all my emails within a week, so if I've ignored you, there's a good chance it's because I didn't get your message.
Somehow I missed the email last February about this list, but it's still very nice to see it now: Mokie and Bik are included in the list of 6 books for children aged 6 to 8. YAY!
An early review of Mokie and Bik go to Sea - I can't help it, it's fun to read such nice things!

Interesting thoughts from Steven Engelfried of the Association for Library Services for Children
Another lovely review, this one by Warren Truitt of the Donnell Central Children's Room, The New York Public Library. Could there be anything nicer for this than to be in a list with Dr Seuss?
