Ezra Jack Keats award night.

Last night Ezra Jack Keats award ceremony was hold at New York Public Library.
It was so wonderful to have all my lovely friends. They came all the way from Atlanta, Pennsylvania, Brooklyn, Jersey city and Lexington to celebrate for me.
I didn't get to have chance to take photo with my agents and art directors but thank you so much everyone to come and make my day so special~!

The little red fish Japanese edition~!

The little red fish is available in Japanese now. And the cover looks so pretty! Original little red fish cover is red cloth with no dust jacket but in this Japanese edition, they used textured red paper with same textured paper dust jacket. I love the little window in the middle of the dust jacket.
And they used the cover of my book as their catalog cover!
Thanks for the beautiful job to the Japanese publisher. (I am dying to know this publishers name but I can not read Japanese.)

Also Tonya Hegamin won as an author for her book Most Loved in All the World.
Thanks so much to Ezra Jack Keats committee!
