it's an honor just to be nominated...

...is the standard line, but this time I REALLY mean it. Because the kind people at Papertigers have nominated ME for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award!

I'm sooo flattered, though I will not be holding my breath for a win...the last two Americans to win were Maurice Sendak and Katherine Patterson! Still, it's pretty fun to think my name is somewhere circling around theirs though (albeit probably in the broad periphery!).
