It’s been an exciting week around here! So exciting that in the last two days I’ve shattered (and I mean shattered) a glass container on our front walk, and smashed a drinking glass in the sink. I haven’t broken this many dishes since I was pregnant. (And no, I am most definitely not!)
Part of the reason I’m all aflutter is this: 50 Burning Questions has won the Information Book Award, presented by the Children’s Literature Roundtables of Canada. The honour book is Fatty Legs, by fellow Annick authors Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret Pokiak-Fenton.
We had some stiff competition, including Deborah Hodge’s Up We Grow! A Year in the Life of a Small, Local Farm — one of the most gorgeous books on my personal shelves this season.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to smash more glasses.
