While googling my book's title (a not-so-secret secret is that authors are prone to doing this at least once a week...), I found The Pout-Pout Fish listed as one of the nominees for the South Carolina 2010-11 Picture Book Award.
The sponsoring organization is the South Carolina Association of School Librarians. I believe that school librarians are a national treasure (and it breaks my heart that more and more schools are eliminating library staff), so it's a deep and true honor to see The Pout-Pout Fish on a nomination list as selected by school librarians. Thank you!
