Crystal Kite Award

May 21, 2015

I'm amazed, honored and thrilled by the news that Feathers: Not Just For Flying has won the Crystal Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. This is a particularly meaningful award, since it's voted on by fellow members of SCBWI. The author, Melissa Stewart and I are both so happy and grateful.

Feathers has been honored a number of times since the start of the year, including winning the CYBILS Award, the Nerdy Book Club Award, and the John Burroughs Association Riverby Award. It's also an ALA Notable Book. It was a labor of love for me from the start; I fell in love with Melissa's manuscript and I felt all through the illustration process that we were creating something special. It's unbelievably gratifying to have our hard work recognized by so many organizations.

Extra thanks to the editor, Julie Bliven, art director, Diane Earley, and all the great folks at Charlesbridge for taking so much time to make sure every page was as good as it could be.
