...to congratulate two of our all-time favorite writer chicks, whom we adore as much in person as we do on the page:
Tracie Vaughn Zimmer, winner of the Schneider Family Award for Reaching for Sun; and
Lisa Wheeler, winner of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Award for Jazz Baby! (Read our interview with Lisa here.)
And let us not forget our double duty man Mo Willems, who pulled down a Caldecott Honor Award for Knuffle Bunny Too and the Geisel Award for There Is a Bird on Your Head! (Read our interview with Mo here.)
We are celebrating with a grand party here in the coop, complete with kazoos, whoopie cushions, eggsploding won tons, and a posse of Shriner guys in little cars and fezzes.
Three cheers for Tracie, Lisa, Mo, and all the 2008 ALA Award winners!
