I'll Follow The Moon receives 3rd place - Chocolate Lily Book Awards in Vancouver!

What a proud day!

Our little turtle enjoyed some real fame and international acclaim in Vancouver, Canada this week! Awarded 3rd place by the Chocolate Lily Book Awards Committee - he truly followed the moon to a most wonderful surprise!

Illustrator Lee Edward Fodi was there to receive the honors and enjoy the fanfare...

Some background on this estimable award:

"BC Chocolate Lily Book Awards Program involves thousands of elementary schoolchildren in the best of BC children's literature. Through an annual nonprofit program founded by teacher, Karen Ehrenholz, students around British Columbia are reading the following books nominated for the 2006 BC Chocolate Lily Book Awards. Chocolate Lily, developed to encourage grade school students to read some of the best fiction by BC authors and illustrators, culminates with a gala event in June. Nominated books are selected by a panel of teachers, librarians, and authors."

Gosh - I am so proud! Join me in celebrating... and be sure to visit
