Thank you, Abilene, Texas!!!!!

Last Friday I was on my way to a Sox game at Fenway. So already, my day was awesome. But then , on my way out the door I decided to check my e-mail one last time.

And then my day got even better! A representative of the Abilene, TX school system wrote. They have an award for picture books called The Mockingbird Award and Punk Farm won this year! The award is this really cool sculpture. And even cooler is that the kids are given a selection of books to choose from and they voted for Punk Farm.

I am so excited and so grateful to all the kids for reading and voting and to all the educators who facilitated the award program. The statue will be placed in my new studio with pride!
