A Bill Martin Jr. Picture Book Award Nominee!

Polar Opposites was recently nominated for the Kansas Reading Association's 2012 Bill Martin Jr. Picture Book Award.  

Established in 1996, this award serves to honor internationally renowned Kansas author Bill Martin, Jr., as well as commend outstanding authors/illustrators. It also promotes in young children an appreciation for literature and encourages involvement in promoting quality picture books. Please click here to read more about Bill Martin Jr. 
The 2012 voting is a long ways off, but this is still some excellent news on a blustery spring-like afternoon. A big thanks to the KRA and everyone else that has been enjoying this book. I'll keep you posted on what happens next!

Hey, Erik! Thanks for the kind post. I'm super impressed with all the titles you've written and illustrated. You've got a lot of experience under your belt! When I get a chance to swing by the library, I'll definitely look you up.

Also, I love the energetic linework in your Harts Pass comics. Great work!
