The Writer has just learned that her novel, Seeing Sky-Blue Pink, is on the Master List for the William Allen White Award in the grade 3 to 5 category.
This award was created in 1952, the year The Writer was born. She is thrilled to be on the list.
The old thrilled-to-be-nominated thing again?
All the schoolchildren in grades 3 to 5 are required to read Seeing Sky-Blue Pink. That's a pretty big deal! So The Writer is thrilled!
Hey, I just remembered! There's a cat in that book--a big black cat like me who can predict the weather. I'm keeping my paws crossed that our book wins. Then people will ask if they can meet that cat and I'll give out paw-to-graphs.
I knew you'd have The Writer's best interests at heart.
