Crystal Kite Winner Patrice Barton Honored at SCBWI Site . . .

Crystal Kite Winner Patrice Barton Honored at SCBWI Site . . .

Patrice Barton illustrated MINE! (written by me), for Knopf in 2011.  She was honored by winning a Crystal Kite award for her work. This award is given by the voting members of SCBWI (Soc. of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators).  YAY, Patrice!!!

 

 

There’s a very nice piece about her and her work at the SCBWI blog site.  Its at:  http://scbwi.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-2012-crystal-kite-winner-profiles.html .

Stop by while it’s still up. And a little bird recently notified me that Patrice and I are not done collaborating. There’ll be another book out with Alfred A. Knopf in the near future, titled UH-OH!   (no pub. date yet).

Enjoy!

(p.s.:  MINE! just came out in board book format for those young readers who like to taste their books as they read . . . yum!)
