This is neat!

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!

Congrats on the nomination! Mr. Fish definitely deserves it!

That's crazy that some schools are cutting back on library staff. That's really a shame...
