While I am proud of each and every one of my books, none of them have ever won an award-until now. Today my book, MY DOG, BOB received an award from the JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD. The accompanying letter states, "The Junior Library Guild Selection designation is unique in that it is typically awarded so early-often in advance of publication. With its distinction as one of the first awards given, it is often viewed as a bellwether of future success." Thank you Junior Library Guild. I am very proud and honored to receive your designation.
